Bhubaneswar, Dec 21:
Hours after she filed nomination for the corporator’s post from Ward number-7 on BJD ticket, some unknown miscreants torched the car of Swarnaprava Ray late on Friday night.
The matter came to light after Swarnaprava’s husband Sushant Ray of Phase-II of Sailashree Vihar lodged a complaint with Chandrasekharpur police station here on Saturday.
“We came to know about it in the morning. The incident happened last night when the family was asleep. The car, bearing Registration number- OR 02 AY 7676, was parked inside our residence boundary and was completely burnt,” a family member informed.
It could be the handiwork of political rivals, the family member added.
