Bhubaneswar: Cuttack-Choudwar MLA Souvik Biswal had a narrow escape after the car he was travelling in was hit by another vehicle on the rear side near Hanspal in Bhubaneswar on Monday night.
Reportedly, Souvik was on his way from Cuttack to Bhubaneswar with his friend in the latter's vehicle when the accident occurred. Souvik escaped unhurt but his friend has sustained minor injuries.
BJD had fielded Souvik, son of former Cuttack-Choudwar MLA Pravat Ranjan Biswal, in the recent polls where he defeated his nearest contender Nayan Kishore Mohanty from BJP by over 21000 votes.
