ANI Patna (Bihar) [India]
A schoolgirl was injured on Monday in a loot and firing incident at Dinara in Rohtas district of Bihar.
Two motorcycle-borne goons looted a petrol pump owner while he was on his way to deposit money in the bank and to pick up her daughter from school.
As soon the owner reached to her daughter, the motorcycle-borne accused snatched the bag containing cash. When the petrol pump owner resisted, they started firing bullet shots.
In the meantime, a bullet hit the thigh of the petrol pump owner's daughter who was standing beside.
Palak Kumari told ANI that she was going towards her father when the incident took place.
She told, "Two masked men were riding a motorcycle. One of the accused then fired a gunshot which hit my thigh".
The doctors have declared her to be out of danger.
The victim's father informed that he was also riding a motorcycle and the goons blocked his way with their motorcycle.
He said, "The robbers engaged in a physical scuffle with me as I tried to regain my balance after being hit by their bike. They pushed the bike on to the ground and then pulled out a gun. When I tried to resist, one of the goons fired a gunshot, which hit my daughter".
A case has been registered against the unidentified assailants by the local police. An investigation is underway.
