A BSF constable BD Rao of 133 Battalion at Panisagar opened fire from his service rifle at two of his colleagues and then turned the rifle on himself.
Rao committed ‘suicide’ while two of his colleagues got injured. The incident happened at the BSF DIG headquarters at Panisagar in northern Tripura.
Rao’s colleagues’ – constable Anil Kumar and Dhananjoy Singh of the same battalion – sustained bullet injuries in their legs.
SP Bhanupada Chakraborty rushed to the spot but is tight-lipped about the whole incident.
The police was reportedly not allowed to enter the BSF DIG’s headquarter in Panisagar.
The injured BSF jawans are being treated at Dharmanagar district hospital. Since the condition of Anil Kumar is stated to be critical, the doctors have referred him to GBP hospital in Agartala for further treatment.
Fragging is on the rise among paramilitary personnel and working under high stress conditions is stated to be one of the reason.
