Rourkela, Dec 22 (LocalWire) A builder and his two associates have been arrested for fake firing on himself to seek police protection, said reports on Saturday.
Builder Anmol Singh had taken loans from several money lenders but did not repay them on time. Cops said on Dec 11, he planned a fake firing on himself near Beldihi in Rourkela so that he could apply for police protection and get away with the money.
In the firing, his security guard Mithu Singh was injured and hospitalized. Singh claimed unidentified miscreants had attacked his SUV.
After probing into the incident, the Brahmanitarang police found it was a fake firing.
Pertinently, Singh had earlier faked similar incidents in 2009 and 2011 to avoid money lenders.
