A truck hit one of the vehicles in Bengal Leader of Opposition (LoP) Suvendu Adhikari's convoy on Friday afternoon when he was on his way to Kanthi from Tamluk, a police officer said. No one sustained any injury in the mishap at Marishda, he said.

The convoy vehicle, belonging to CRPF jawans in-charge of Adhikary's security, however, was badly damaged.

According to the officer, a speeding Kalyani-Digha route bus went past the vehicle, which, in a bid to avoid collision, moved to the right and got hit by a truck instead.

The driver of the truck fled the spot, abandoning the vehicle, he said, adding that a search to nab him has been initiated.

Adhikari, later posting a picture of the damaged vehicle, said he and all others in his convoy were safe.

''A heavy vehicle rammed into a CRPF escort car of my convoy. By the grace of Lord Jagannath, nobody was hurt. I am not injured & would continue attending scheduled events. I am grateful for the innumerous calls enquiring about my well being & would assure everyone that I am fine,'' Adhikari tweeted.
