Sister of woman claiming to be MLA’s wife moves court

Bhubaneswar: The sister of the woman claiming to be the wife of Talcher MLA Braja Pradhan today appeared before a court stating that she is the direct witness of her sister’s marriage with the legislator.

“I am the witness of my sister’s marriage. The wedding was held in both Puri and Bhubaneswar,” she said. After the marriage, both of them were staying in the official residence of the MLA, she alleged.

She also told the court that the legislator also paid Rs 1 lakh per month for her sister’s maintenance.

The woman, who has been claiming to be the wife of Pradhan, last month ransacked official residence of the MLA. Pradhan was not present in his quarters when she vandalized flower pots and broke furniture.
