The in-charge of Sergeant Ahad Police Box at Gulistan sustained bullet injuries in an ‘accidental’ firing by a patrol inspector inside the police box on Tuesday.

Additional deputy commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (Motijheel) Shibly Noman told that sub-inspector Obaidur Rahman, patrol inspector Saiful and assistant commissioner (Patrol) Ilias were sitting together at the AC’s room at noon.

“When Saiful was cleaning his firearm, a bullet suddenly came out of it around 12:30 pm and hit Obaidur in his two legs,” he said.

“The injured was first taken to Dhaka Medical College Hospital and then shifted to Square Hospitals Ltd,” Shibly said, adding that the sub-inspector was now out of danger.

He also said a four-member committee has been formed, led by him, to investigate the incident and the committee was asked to submit its report by November 30.
