Begusarai: At least one person was killed, and 10 others were injured after they were shot by unidentified bike-borne assailants in Bihar's Begusarai.

According to reports, it is being told that the criminals fired in Bachwara, Phulwaria, Chakia, and Teghra police stations.

At least 3 people were injured in Chakia, 2 each in Teghra and Phulwaria regions. A total of 10 people were shot out of whom one succumbed to injuries. The deceased was identified as Chandan Kumar.

Begusarai SP Yogendra Kumar and District Magistrate Roshan Kushwaha have launched a search operation to nab shooters and further investigation in the case is underway.

Speaking on the matter, Union Minister and Begusarai MP Giriraj Singh said, "there is no government in Bihar, and no fear of law among criminals. The criminals fearlessly fired at several people & travelled 30 km across 4 police station areas, but they weren't caught by police. CM should give a statement on this."

"We demand that the state government should give ex-gratia amount of at least Rs 1 crore to the family of the deceased and Rs 50 lakhs each to those injured in the firing incident," Giriraj Singh added.

The police are clueless about the attackers, who shot pedestrians coming in their way in different police stations of the district. 

The police said that two persons were shot at in Mallehpur, three persons shot at near Barauni thermal power station chowk, two shot at in Barauni city, two in Tihra block, and two in Bachhwara block.

The first incident occurred at a place under Tigra police station at 6 pm. The attackers were carrying sophisticated weapons and headed towards the Bachhwara police station area.

The attackers started indiscriminate firing on NH 31 and then headed towards NH 28 and the eyewitnesses have said that they have entered Barauni city.

Begusarai SP Yogendra Kumar said that the attackers were caught on CCTV camera in one place and police are making efforts to identify them. District police also appealed to people to stay inside their houses and avoid roaming on the road.

The injured were admitted to different hospitals in Begusarai. One of them was referred to PMCH Patna.
