Ananya Dutta

KOLKATA: A man who was shot at by unidentified persons drove himself to a police station here in the early hours of Monday to report the crime before he collapsed. He was rushed to a hospital, but was declared dead on arrival.

Mohammad Salaudin (42) arrived at the Ultadanga police station in northern Kolkata with bullet injuries at 5-15 a.m. He had driven there in his car, a Honda City, after being shot at in the Salt Lake City area nearby, police officers said.

The victim was able to give his name and the place where he had been attacked before collapsing. However, he did not give any information about his assailants. He was rushed to the R. G. Kar Medical College and Hospital, but died on the way, they added.

The post-mortem report has revealed three bullet injuries. While two bullets grazed past, the third one was lodged in his abdomen. Going by the position of the bullet holes, it is likely that he was shot at from his left side, Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Damayanti Sen said.
