Paradip, Aug 13:

Supervisor of an under construction plastic park was shot at by unidentified miscreants in Paradip today. The victim, identified as Jitendra Pradhan, sustained bullet injuries on his head.


According to sources, three bike-borne miscreants came to the plastic park site and told Pradhan to stop construction work. As Pradhan refused to do so, they fired at him. The trio fled the spot soon after the incident.

A grievously injured Pradhan was initially admitted to Paradip hospital and later shifted to SCB Medical College and Hospital in Cuttack as his condition deteriorated.

The reason behind the firing was yet to be ascertained.
