Bhadrak: Unidentified miscreants allegedly hacked a man and looted Rs 10 lakh from him in Odisha’s Bhadrak district today.
One Pramod Bhanja, an employee of an LPG agency, was reportedly attacked by three bike-borne miscreants with a knife and robbed of Rs 10 lakh at Jhirapur under Tihidi police limits of the district.
The incident took place when Bhanja was going on his bike to deposit the cash in a bank.
Some locals rescued him from the spot and took him to Tihidi Community Health Centre for treatment as he had sustained injury on his left palm due to the attack.
Later, Bhanja lodged a complaint in this regard with Tihidi police.
Meanwhile, police have started an investigation into the matter.
