Another Agarwal assailant killed

PATNA, NOV. 21. A member of the Bindu Singh gang, Navlesh Dubey, who was among the assailants who killed surgeon N. K. Agarwal on Deepavali, was shot dead by police in Rajendra Nagar here tonight.

The Senior Superintendent of Police, N. H. Khan, said that on a tip-off, the police chased Dubey, who was riding a stolen motorcycle with an associate. ``The criminals opened fire prompting the police to open fire in which Dubey was killed," Mr. Khan said.

Dubey's associate escaped in the cover of darkness. Two policemen were injured in the exchange of fire.

Another assailant of Agarwal, Chandan Sharma, was killed by Patna police in an encounter last Friday.

Agarwal's murder had sparked widespread protests with doctors going on an indefinite strike across Bihar, that ended on November 18.
