Bhubaneswar: While the Odisha capital is cheering for the ongoing Men’s Hockey World Cup, some unidentified miscreants allegedly looted medals and valuables belonging to former Team India captain Prabodh Tirkey from his government quarters at Unit-6 here.

According to sources, the miscreants decamped with five of his medals, a desktop, two television sets, a gold chain and a gold ring on Friday midnight when he and his family members went to their native village in Sundargarh.

“I got to know about the burglary after my caretaker. He found that the lock of my house was broken and things were lying scattered,” Tirkey told the media.

A police complaint has been filed at Capital Police Station and an investigation is on to apprehend the burglars. Dog squads also visited his house as part of the investigation, he added.
