Blank Firing Redux In Puri

01 October 2019


Puri: Just days after four persons were arrested following circulation of a video showing them fire several rounds of blank fire at an event in Puri, two more videos of two persons firing three rounds of blank fire have surfaced on social media.

As seen in the video, a person wearing black t-shirt fired three rounds in the air and another person wearing a black and white striped t-shirt and having a tattoo on his right arm fired one round.

While the youth in black t-shirt is suspected to be a bodyguard of Narayan Sahu, the person arrested in the previous blank firing incident, police is yet to reveal the identity of the duo involved in the incident.

Puri SP Umashankar Dash informed that the fresh incident has been also brought under the probe purview. The persons involved in the recent videos have been identified and adequate action in this regard will be taken soon.

It is worthwhile to mention that a businessperson Narayan Sahu alias Narua and three of his bodyguard Bakur Kumar, Debendra Kumar and Pappu had been arrested earlier. They had taken to the stage during an event in Bali Sahi area and shot at least six rounds in the air while the show was on. The entire episode was captured on a mobile camera which later went viral on social media.
