Bhubaneswar/Balasore, Nov 26: A day after BJP supporters hurled eggs at the convoy of Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik in Puri, Congress supporters targeted BJD MP Aparajita Sarangi in the same way near Bhubaneswar.

Eggs were hurled at her vehicle and she was shown black flags at Banamalipur by Congress workers to protest against unemployment and price rise of various commodities including fuel.

Police detained two persons in connection with the incident following a complaint lodged by the Bhubaneswar MP's representative Dhaneswar Barik.

The complainant alleged that the attackers also hurled stones at her vehicle and they were carrying knives and other weapons.

Meanwhile, there was a heated exchange of words between supporters of the ruling BJD and opposition BJP at the foundation laying ceremony for the new railway station building in Balasore town.

The incident occurred in presence of BJP MP Pratap Sarangi and BJD MLA Swarup Das who were present at the programme.

As BJD workers raised slogans hailing CM Patnaik, BJP supporters did the same in favour of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

As the slogan competition increased, it turned into a heated exchange of words. However, it was brought under control Sarangi and Das.

The BJD's state youth wing working president Suvendu Mangaraj claimed that the state government has its share in the project.

However, BJP Yuva Morcha president in Balasore, Rajesh Mohapatra, asserted that Railway Minister Ashwani Vaishnaw was the Collector of Balasore when this project was sanctioned.

Kota (Rajasthan)(PTI): Upset over regular fights with her husband, a 40-year-old woman allegedly jumped into a well with her five minor daughters, all of whom died, when the man had gone to attend the condolence meeting of a relative, police said Sunday.

They said the villagers spotted the six bodies Sunday morning and informed the police who rushed the bodies to a local hospital.

The deceased woman has been identified as Badamdevi, a mother of seven and the wife of Shivlal Banjara, a resident of Banjaron Ka Dera at Kaliyahedi village under Chechat police station.

The five minor deceased girls are Savitri (14), Ankali (8), Kajal (6), Gunjan (4) and one-year-old Archana. Police said the two other daughters -- Gayatri (15) and Punam (7) -- escaped the ill-fate as they remained asleep.

Chechat Circle Officer DSP Praveen Nayak said prima facie the routine fights between the woman and her husband was the reason behind the woman taking the extreme step.

Shivlal worked as a blanket and cloth vendor.

The CO said the man was not present at his home when the incident occurred on the intervening night of Saturday on Sunday as he had gone to attend the condolence meeting at his relative's home in another village.

Chechat police station SHO Rajendra Meena said the well is just 100 meters from the house of the woman.

Shivlal returned to home Sunday morning after being informed of the incident but he did not tell the police why his wife took the extreme step, the SHO said.

A case under section 174 of CrPC would be lodged in the matter to investigate carried out, he said.

The postmortem of the six bodies is underway, he said.
