Newly elected Cuttack Sadar MLA Prakash Sethi's car was allegedly attacked on Sunday night. The incident occurred at Sompur in Cuttack when the MLA was returning after attending a Raja Mahotsav programme in Kishorenagar area.

Though nothing happened to the MLA and his car, police have detained the accused youth in connection with the incident.

"We had gone to Kishorenagar to attend a programme and were returning when the youth came and attacked my vehicle. He is a local youth and was approaching towards us in an aggressive manner. We slowed the car and he attacked the vehicle when we were sitting inside," said MLA Prakash Sethi.
