Sundergarh: Unidentified miscreants allegedly looted a SUV, ATM card, mobile phones and cash worth Rs 1 lakh from a staff posted at District Project Coordinator’s office near Tamada under Gurundia police limits in Sundergarh district.

According to sources, the miscreants reportedly looted cash while one Amartya Pradhan (IED Coordinator) along with an employee of DPC office were returning to Rourkela after finishing a school tender work on Saturday night.
