Publish Date: 07 Aug, 2022 |

A CISF jawan posted at the Indian Museum in Kolkata allegedly shot two of his colleagues on Sunday evening. In this incident, a senior colleague of the jawan was killed while another officer was injured. Officials said that head constable A.K. Mishra killed Assistant Sub-Inspector Ranjit Sarangi with an AK47 rifle while Assistant Commandant rank officer Suveer Ghosh sustained minor injuries.

Injured Jawan rushed to the hospital

The CISF jawan was inside after shooting the comrades. After hearing the gunshots, many people gathered around the place. The injured jawan was rushed to the hospital with the help of an ambulance. At the same time, the police have arrested the accused CISF jawan. A large number of police forces have also been deployed at the spot.

In December 2019 too, the CISF took over the security of the Indian Museum. It is not yet known why the CISF jawan opened fire on his fellow jawan. Was there a dispute between the three about something or was there some other reason? At present, the police have caught the accused jawan and have taken him with them.

Accused taken to Police station

A vehicle was also damaged in the firing at the barracks of the more than 200-year-old museum. The police took the arrested CISF employee and the damaged car to New Market police station. While being taken in a police vehicle, Mishra shook hands at the journalists present near the museum. Later a forensic team of Kolkata Police reached the spot. 

The CISF took over the armed security of the museum located in the Park Street area in the heart of Kolkata in December 2019. Established in 1814, the Indian Museum is the oldest and largest multipurpose museum not only in the Indian subcontinent but also in the Asia-Pacific region of the world. It is an autonomous organization under the administrative control of the Union Ministry of Culture.
