Bhubaneswar, Jan 17:
Eggs and tomatoes were hurled at Congress Bhawan here by some leaders of the party’s student wing late last night.
According to reports, five youths came near the Congress Bhawan at around 10.30 pm and hurled eggs and tomatoes from outside. Besides, they damaged some flower pots on the premises of the party state headquarters.
They fled the spot soon after the incident.
National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) state unit president Itish Pradhan and Congress leader Debasish Patnaik reached the Congress Bhawan and took stock of the situation.
On being informed, Capital police reached the spot and started investigation.
Though the wrongdoers were yet to be identified, it is suspected that some student Congress leaders who were recently dismissed from the party might have committed the act.
