Dhenkanal: Unidentified miscreants hurled a bomb at the car of former MLA Nabin Nanda at Thakurapal village under Gondia block of Dhenkanal district on Monday. The former lawmaker escaped unhurt in the bombing.
According to sources, Swabhiman Surakhya rally was underway at Thakurapal village when two miscreants hurled a bomb at Nanda’s car from behind and fled the scene.
While Nanda escaped unhurt in the bombing, the car got damaged as the rear windshield of the vehicle was broken.
