Balasore, October 21 (LocalWire): Unknown miscreants kidnapped a journalist Srikrushna Behera of Oupada block on Sunday evening.
According to sources, Behera was returning from the local market on his bike around 7 pm when a bike hit him from behind on the stretch between Oupada and Fatepur near Jimpura chhak.
While he fell down from the impact, a Bolero coming from the opposite direction stopped and miscreants forcibly pulled Behera in their vehicle and fled.
The reason behind the possible kidnapping was not known, though it is suspected that previous enmity could be the reason behind it.
On getting the information, Oupada police station officer-in-charge Prasant Jena put together a team to trace of Behera, but they have not been able to locate him or get his whereabouts so far.
Behera was working for a vernacular daily in the Oupada block.
