2 dead, 2 critical in firing during ‘melody program’ in Cuttack

Cuttack: At least two persons were killed and an equal number sustained critical injuries in firing by miscreants which took place during a music and dance show in Katikata Chhak under Nischintakoili police limits in the district last night.

The deceased has been identified as Abu Baqar of Bharatpada near Mahanga area and Nityananda Mallick of Patasail village.

The attack took place late in the night while a melody progam (dance and music event) was being organised at Katikata Chhak and a verbal duel erupted between Abu and an unidentified youth. As the argument escalated further the latter took out a revolver and fired at Abu killing him on the spot.

As three others identified as Nityananda Mallick, Uttam Das and Raghunath Mallick came forward to help Abu, the attacker also fired at them in which they sustained bullet injures on their legs and stomachs.

While the injured were rushed to SCB Medical in Cuttack following the incident, Nityananda died there under treatment.

Police have lodged a case in the incident and are trying to trace the absconding attacker.
