Bhubaneswar, March 17 (LocalWire): A private security guard was seriously injured Saturday when two attackers opened fire at him in Bankuala area of the state capital, police said.
Victim Gyanendra Mallick was deployed at a “Kalyan Mandap” when he was attacked in the wee hours.
Police suspect the shootout may be the fallout of a personal enmity.
Mallick was first rushed to Capital Hospital, which then referred him to SCB Medical College in Cuttack, police said.
A witness said: “Two people came in a bike and enquired about the Mandap’s owner. They then asked the guard to get water. When he returned, one of them opened fire at him. We could not identify them as one of them had covered his face while the other was wearing a helmet.”
A police officer said, “Two youths used to lift helmets from motorcycles parked in front of the Mandap. The guard identified them.”
