Bomb hurled at Dhenkanal Municipality chairperson’s house

Dhenkanal: Some unidentified miscreants allegedly hurled crude bombs at the house of Jayanti Patra, newly-elected chairperson of Dhenkanal Municipality, late Saturday night.

However, no one was injured in the incident.

The main gate of the house and some vehicles parked on the premises got damaged.

“I and my family members were sleeping when the bombing took place. Examination of CCTV camera footage revealed that the incident took place around 1.40 am. My political rivals might have involvement in the hurling of bombs,” said Patra.
