Visually impaired couple suffer harassment from family members and police

Milton charitable foundation for visually handicapped (MCFVH) has drawn the attention of the district administration on alleged harassment of a visually-impaired couple by their family members and police.

At a media conference on Tuesday, A K Panda, general secretary of MCFVH, said Ajit Sahu and his wife Sashirekha Sahu of Kumbhar street in Soroda were driven out of their house by their family members over a property dispute.

Without any shelter, the couple with their two kids are roaming in the streets, he alleged. Even the family members lodged false complaints against Sashirekha and the police without proper investigation arrested her. Panda has appealed the district administration for justice.
