Bhubaneswar: A liquor shop salesman sustained bullet injuries after being shot at by two bike-borne miscreants near Balakati panchayat office on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar last night.
According to sources, the salesman Jagabandhu Sahu was returning from the shop with his friend Nabakumar Sahu on a bike when the miscreants approached them from behind and fired a warning shot to stop them.
The duo tried to speed off but the miscreants overtook them and knocked their bike down along with Jagabandhu and his friend.
“They snatched away the money from me and shot him three times. He has sustained bullet injuries on his arm, leg and back,” said Nabakumar.
The miscreants fled from the spot after looting Rs 5000 from the duo. Jagabandhu was rushed to Balakati hospital from where he was referred to Capital hospital.
