Miscreants loot Bolero after killing driver in Sundergarh

Sundergarh: In a ghastly act, unidentified miscreants killed driver of a Bolero, injured another and looted the vehicle near Kokerama under Hatibari police limits of the district late last night, police said.

The deceased has been identified as Brajakishore Badaik.

The locals have shifted the injured, Mahesh Pradhan to Ispat General Hospital (IGH) in Rourkela for treatment.

“Five youths hired a Bolero at Purnapani chowk to travel to Biramitrapur. They asked the driver to stop the vehicle to attend nature’s call near Kokerama. The miscreants then tried to take control of the car. When the two, including the driver, resisted their attempts they were attacked with a machete,” Karindra Ghadai, a relative of Badaik said.
Soon after the incident the miscreants fled the spot with the vehicle, police said.

“We are investigating the matter. Very soon we will be able to crack the case,” Biramitrapur SDPO A Rana said.
