Berhampur: At least three persons were injured when police fired to disperse a stone pelting mob in Kodala area of Ganjam district Friday.

Police had gone there to persuade the locals to lift a
road blockade, but they were attacked with stones by the
protestors, Deputy Inspector General of Police (Southern
Range), R K Sharma said.

Unable to control the mob with canes, police fired injuring three persons, he said.
The people blocked the road in protest against arrest of
45 people in connection with a group clash claiming two lives
early this week.
