Angul: Bikrampur Police on late Saturday arrested two BJP workers on charges of torching BJD MLA Braja Kishore Pradhan’s vehicles at his office at Angul’s Nandira office.
The accused have been identified as Swadhin Thamb and Jiten Mohanty. While Swadhin is the president of the Yuva Samajsevi Sanghathan, Jiten is its secretary. The prime accused in the torching incident is still absconding, and the search for whom is underway said Police.
It is believed that political rivalry made the men do such vile act.
It is important to note here that Swadhin has been previously arrested too on charges of maligning the MLA when he had put posters accusing Pradhan of casting couch.
Talcher MLA’s car and bike were torched on December 7. Previously too, on August 19 miscreants had torched two bikes and two cars parked in the MLA’s official residence in Bhubaneswar. Then some miscreants had locked the door from outside and had torched the vehicles in the parking area.
