146 Days ago

Kolkata, March 2 (IANS) Enraged over bursting of crackers, a police officer in West Bengal's East Midnapore district allegedly opened fire at a mob on Wednesday, leaving a man injured.

The incident occurred in Egra early Wednesday when an argument over bursting of crackers during a puja led to a heated argument between the locals and sub divisional police officer (SDPO) Manoranjan Ghosh.

While the residents alleged it was Ghosh who fired at the mob, police said a probe has been ordered in the incident.

Confirming that firing has taken place, Superintendent of Police Alok Rajoria said a mob tried to attack Ghosh's house.

"A mob had gathered here and the broken window panes suggest they might have tried to attack the house. A probe has been ordered as to what actually happened and what led to the firing," said Rajoria.

Tapan Shaw who sustained a bullet injury in his leg has been admitted to a hospital. (IANS)
