Angul: Unidentified miscreants have torched Talcher MLA Braja Kishore Pradhan’s SUV at his camp office in Nandira village last night.
The incident took place at around 2 am in the night when Pradhan was taking rest in his room. A group of miscreants sneaked into the compound of the camp office and set the MLA’s Toyota Fortuner SUV parked next to an ambulance.
Till the staff of the office came to know about the blaze the miscreants had fled from the spot.
Later the fire was doused by the staffs and police was intimated on the incident.
Police have launched efforts to trace the miscreants involved in the torching.
Notably, this is not the first occasion when miscreants have targeted Pradhan’s vehicle. Earlier on August 18 night this year, miscreants had set as many as four vehicles owned by the MLA on fire at his Unit-IV residence in Bhubaneswar when he was away.
