A journalist who worked with local Hindi daily was shot at in Patna’s Bihta locality.
“When Shankar was about to reach his home, the bike-borne assailants who were waiting to attack him, opened fire on him. Of the five rounds, Shankar suffered one gunshot injury,” said Ranjit Kumar, SHO of Bihta police station.
As Ravi Shankar fell unconscious, attackers thought that he died and fled from the spot.
“The victim is taken to a private hospital and his condition is said to be serious. We are trying to take his statement and also scanning the CCTV footage as well as his mobile phone to find some clues,” Kumar said.
