DCIB personnel opens fire following attack

Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE: Personnel of the District Crime Intelligence Bureau (DCIB) opened fire on a mob of 30 persons which attacked them with lethal weapons at Mahindala in the Bantwal Rural Police Station limits on Friday.

One of the attackers was injured in the incident which took place when the DCIB staff was returning to the city after arresting two persons in connection with a case of possessing and trying to sell tiger skin illegally.

N. Sathish Kumar, Superintendent of Police, who confirmed that the incident took place, told The Hindu that the DCIB staff, headed by Police Inspector A.D. Nagaraj, had gone to Vogga on definite information that two persons were trying to sell tiger skin.

The DCIB team arrested Tajuddin, a resident of Kasargod, and Karim, a resident of Mulki, in this connection and recovered the tiger skin and seized a vehicle from them. A group, which followed them on motorcycles, waylaid the DCIB team at Mahindala. Mr. Nagaraj said the group assaulted the personnel with stones and other weapons and caused injuries to head constables Vasanth and Narendra. DCIB personnel Parameshwar fired two rounds in the air from his service pistol to quell the mob, he said. One of the bullets hit Shamshuddin, a resident of Marje in Bantwal taluk.
