**Bhubaneswar:** A woman, claiming to be BJD MLA Braja Pradhan’s wife, was taken into custody by the police for ransacking the lawmaker’s government quarter.
Earlier the 30-year-old woman had alleged Pradhan having physically tortured her when she demanded social recognition after they got married in Jagannath Temple at Puri on April 5, 2015.
The woman also had alleged that Pradhan befriended her in December 2014 after her phone was mistakenly connected to him.
She had also lodged a written complaint at the Mahila Police Station here.
But the Commissionerate Police had asked the woman to record her statement in a proper platform.
Bhubaneswar DCP Satyabrata Bhoi informed that as the case comes under section 493 of IPC, which is a non-cognizable offence, so the victim should take the help of court of law.
