BHUBANESWAR: Unidentified miscreants looted Rs 5 lakh from the car of a city-based businessman in broad daylight at Unit III under Kharavela Nagar police limits here on Monday.
The incident occurred at 1.30 pm when Sk Wasim, a scrap trader, had gone for shopping after keeping a bag carrying Rs 5 lakh, in the boot space of his car.
On his return, Wasim was shocked to see the car dicky open and the cash bag missing. He rushed to Kharavela Nagar police station and lodged a complaint in this regard.
