“In retaliation, the police team had to fire on the person to stop fatal injuries on the policemen. One of the police personnel is now in a severe condition”, he added.

A Nagaon Police team allegedly shot a student leader in Nagaon’s Kachalukhua without any “valid reason” on Saturday night.

The injured student leader was identified as Kirtti Kamal Bora of the Kachalukhua area and he said that he was shot by the police after a small argument.

Kriti said that he was coming home after buying medicines for his mother but on the way, he saw a few police personnel beating two persons he knew.

When he questioned the policemen on what was going on, they allegedly asked him to get off his bike.

Kriti said that after he got off his bike, the police started to assault him and after he fell, one of them shot him on his knee.

“After I was no longer able to get up, one of the policemen said that they should have shot me on my chest”, he added.

He said, “I was not drunk but the policemen were. After I was on the ground, one of them brought some liquor bottles and three them by my side claiming that I was drunk.”
