Paradip: After a few months of lull, tension engulfed again in the erstwhile proposed site of Posco after two unidentified miscreants hurled bombs at a pro-plant leader’s house in Nuagaon village under Abhaychandpur police limits, over tender application last night.
The leader whose house has been targeted is identified as Tamil Pradhan, a cashew nut trader and a pro-Posco leader of Paradip area.
Some unidentified miscreants reached near Pradhan’s house located in the village late in the night and hurled two country bombs targeting the wall and gate. While one bomb exploded damaging the wall, the other went unexploded. The miscreants fled from the spot immediately after the incident.
While no case has been lodged in this connection, a source said Pradhan was receiving threats over past few days from a group in the village over applying for a cashew nut orchard tender in Nolia Sahi area.
He had received threat calls to not proceed with the tender formalities and the attack could have been carried out in connection to that, it added.
