The woman, identified as Sonalika Mohanty, trespassed into the legislator's residence at the MLAs' colony here.
She could not enter the house as it was locked. However, she damaged flower vases and plastic chairs in the premises, said police.
The MLA was not in the house when the incident occurred.
The woman alleged that Pradhan had physically tortured her when she demanded social recognition after they got married in Jagannath Temple at Puri on April 5, 2015.
She had also lodged a written complaint at the Mahila Police Station here. She has also lodged a complaint with the National Commission for Women (NCW).
"I don't know why the police are not taking any action against the MLA even though I have lodged a complaint against him," said Mohanty.
However, the BJD MLA denied the allegations.
"The allegations made by the woman are false and baseless.
I am not married to her. I am a bachelor. It could be part of the conspiracy against me by political opponents," Pradhan told reporters here.
