Gunshot victim dead

A land broker succumbed to bullet injuries at Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS) in the capital on Monday morning, a day after he was shot at by one of his business rivals.

Md Firoz Khan (32) had received a bullet in his stomach after Md Irfan alias Rinku, another broker, fired at him over a land dispute.

“Rinku was arrested soon after the incident and he confessed to his crime. We recovered one country-made pistol and two cartridges from him,” Ranchi SSP Bhimsen Tuti informed.

The police also recorded the statement of an eyewitness, Dildar, who said that after exchanging few punches, Rinku suddenly took out a gun and fired at Khan.

Rinku told his interrogators the reason for the fight — he and Khan both were eyeing a plot at Ehshan Nagar at Maulana Azad Colony in Namkum police station area.

Md Rauf, the victim’s father, told the police that Rinku was regularly threatening his son over the phone.

“We are currently investigating whether some more people are involved in the crime or not. The criminal background of Rinku is also being checked. There are allegations from the victim’s family that the accused has friendship with notorious criminal Imroz who is currently lodged in Birsa Munda Central Jail,” said Binod Kumar station in charge of Namkum police station.
