Jamshedpur youth opens fires, arrested


Jamshedpur, March 15: In a prompt action by the police, a 25-year-old youth was arrested within half an hour after he opened fire at a place under the Kapali police station outpost under the area in adjoining Seraikela-Kharsawan district. The accused was identified as Saddam Hussain. The police have recovered a pistol and two live cartridges from his possession.

Hussain, who is a resident of Kapali, had fired several rounds of shots in the air near a community hall at Dangerdih situated along the Dobo-Kanderbera Road. The shots were apparently aimed towards spreading fear in the locality.

Soon after the incident, a patrolling party came into action and detected the accused, who was moving on a bike toward the Kapali TOP. The police team subsequently succeeded in nabbing him after a hot chase.

On being searched, the police found the pistol and two live cartridges from the accused. SDPO, Chandil, Sanjay Singh said they are interrogating the arrested youth, the source he had procured the pistol and about his intention behind firing the weapon.
