On February 27, Dara Singh and six of his co-accused in the Staines triple murder case attacked and injured the jail superintendent and two other staff members of the Choudwar Circle Jail where they are currently lodged. He met the prison superintendent, H.M.S. Pasha, ostensibly to apologise for having abused him earlier. But on entering the office, he and his men fell on Pasha and two other jailors D.N. Patnaik and Sukanta Panda, injuring them.

Authorities feel Dara Singh is trying to delay his case and hold up the trial as he fears an unfavourable verdict. Earlier, he and 12 other accused in the Staines case had gone on a hunger strike demanding transfer of their case from the Khurda sessions court.
