Police notice to BJD MLA’s kin over OUAT student death
Bhubaneswar: Hours after the students of OUAT staged road blockade at Siripur square here demanding action in connection with a road accident which led to the death of a student, Police carried out raid at Siddharth Construction which owns the mishap causing vehicle and examined the papers of the car.
A notice was also served to the firm to furnish details of the concerned vehicle by 10 am tomorrow.
