The Ali police in Kendrapada district on Monday arrested two more persons, including BJD leader Bhishma Mohanty, in connection with the egg attack on Union Tribal Affairs Minister Jual Oram.

The police had earlier arrested seven other persons, Chakradhar Mallick, Lambodhar Jena, Ranjan Gochhayat, Dusasan Mallick, Sanatan Mallick, Rajesh Singh and Niranjan Behera, for their alleged involvement in the incident.
