Patna: With all the tell-tale signs of the return of the 'Jungle Raj' in Bihar despite strong denial by the Nitish administration, criminals in Patna under Fatuha police station shot and killed a police sub-inspector and escaped with the victim's service revolver.
Ram Raj Chowdhary, the 55-year old ASI, was on his motorcycle going towards Fatuha railway station when unidentified criminals opened fire at him. Chowdhary was hit at least one time in the neck and died on the spot.
The criminals then stole his service firearm and escaped before a crowd could gather at the crime scene.
His body was found lying between the Patna-Bakhtiarpur four-lane divider.
Chowdhary, a native of Manihari in Katihar district, was posted at Telhara police station in Nalanda district.
Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Manu Maharaj and other senior officials visited the crime scene and gathered evidence that they hope would lead to the arrest of the killers.
Incidentally, this is the second police officer to be killed in Bihar in the last six months. A third one was also shot in Nalanda district last March but he survived.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
