Cuttack: Four miscreants assaulted a driver of a Bolero during a failed attempt to loot the vehicle near Tangi in the district last night. The miscreants have hired the vehicle from Bhubaneswar railway station.
Police said that the miscreants asked the driver to drive the vehicle on the Birupa river bank to reach a village near Tangi. “The miscreants later assaulted the driver with sharp-edged weapons and demanded him to hand over the keys of the vehicle.
