History-sheeter attacks constable, shot at in leg

Sleuths of the Central Crime Branch (CCB) shot at a history-sheeter in the leg after the latter attacked the police in a bid to escape on Saturday.

The incident occurred at Soladevanahalli, North Bengaluru, in the morning. The injured rowdy, Raja Dorai (24), is a resident of Sanjaynagar in Old Baiyappanahalli.

CCB sleuths were pursuing him as they had information that he, along with a few others, had plans to bump off a member of a rival gang.

The sleuths received information that Dorai was spotted in Soladevanahalli and a police party left to apprehend him. When the sleuths confronted Dorai, he attacked constable Narasimhamurthy with his dagger in a bid to escape.

Inspector Prakash Rathod warned Dorai to drop his weapon and surrender and fired a round in the air.

When Dorai did not heed to his warning, Rathod shot Dorai in his right leg and took his constable to safety. Narasimhamurthy sustained cut injuries. The constable and the history-sheeter were shifted to a hospital for treatment.

Joint Commissioner of Police, N Satheesh Kumar, said, “Raja Dorai was shot in the leg by CCB inspector Prakash Rathod of the organised crime wing in a bid to defend his team.”

There are eight cases, including attempts to murder, assault and extortion registered against Dorai in five police stations in East Bengaluru and in Whitefield division. Dorai is a history-sheeter at Indiranagar police station.
