Bengaluru: Rowdy attacks constable, shot at | Bengaluru News – Times of India


BENGALURU: DJ Halli police opened fire at a 30-year-old rowdy-sheeter Prem Kumar after he attacked a constable with a dagger on Thursday morning near LR Bande in east Bengaluru.
Police were looking for Kumar, who along with his friend Shiva and others, had attacked three men outside a bar near DJ Halli over a trivial issue on September 8. Shiva, 33, was arrested on Wednesday.
Cops received credible information that Kumar was near LR Bande and a team headed by sub-inspector Nagadev Torke rushed to nab him.
As constable Ranganath tried to catch Kumar, he attacked him with a dagger. Torke warned Kumar to surrender and opened fire in the air. But Kumar continued to attack Ranganath, prompting Torke to fire at his leg.
Police said on September 8 Deepak, Kapil and Suresh were partying in Vinutha bar, where the accused were drinking as well. Both groups got into a fight. Shiva, Kumar and the others assaulted the trio with a knife and machetes before fleeing from the spot. DJ Halli police have taken up a case of attempt to murder against the gang and investigation is on.
