Constable Deepak and his partner Mukesh were on patrol duty and checking vehicles in the area when they ran into Sagar Champa in B Block. Champa first tried to flee when stopped for checking, and then got into a scuffle with Mukesh. When Mukesh didn’t let him go, Champa whipped out a dagger and attacked him.
Mukesh was first hit on the right hand, cutting the main artery. Subsequently, he was also stabbed in the chest. As Mukesh fell down, Deepak, who was at a little distance, rushed to his rescue, but he was also attacked. Mukesh then whipped out his pistol and asked Champa to surrender. But Champa tried to stab Deepak following which Mukesh opened fire. While he fired first in the air, the second bullet pierced Champa’s chest.
Help and reinforcement arrived by then and the trio were taken to hospital. While Mukesh and Champa are in the ICU, Deepak has been discharged. Both Mukesh and Champa were operated upon, and the cop is learnt to be stable.
An FIR has been registered for attempted murder and attacking on-duty policemen. Both Deepak and Mukesh will be rewarded for their act.
