Bhubaneswar: A truck driver was critically injured in looters’ attack at Nidhi Panda chhak on National Highway-60 near Balasore last night. The driver, identified as Mahammad Riaz, has been admitted to the Balaore District Headquarters Hospital.
According to reports, the truck was on its way from Uttar Pradesh to Paradip to take oil when two miscreants, coming on a bike, intercepted it near Balasore and asked the driver to hand over all money and valuables he had. As the driver protested, they attacked him with a bhujali and snatched away Rs 15,000 from him.
The driver was taken to the DHH by some locals. Police were yet to reach the hospital.
