Cuttack: In an incident raising serious question over the law and order situation in Odisha’s Cuttack city, a youth was reportedly tied to a motorcycle and forced to run for around 2 km here, last evening.
More shockingly, the local police had no information about the matter.
As per eyewitnesses, two men tied the youth to the motorcycle with a rope and drove the vehicle, making him run on Shailabala Women’s College-Buxi Bazar road here.
Though some locals intercepted the accused duo at Sutahat here and questioned them about the incident, the two threatened them with sharp weapons and warned them not to interfere.
They told the locals that the youth had taken Rs 10,000 from them two months ago for purchasing ganja while he was yet to repay the amount, for which they punished him.
The registration number plate of the motorcycle was broken, eyewitnesses said.
Till last reports came in, no police complaint was lodged in this regard.
