In an encounter with peddlers, a constable posted with the anti-drug STF sustained a bullet injury late last evening. The injured constable has been identified as Gursewak Singh. He was rushed to a private hospital where his condition is stated to be critical. The incident took place at Kohali village under Lopoke police station.

RK Jaiswal, Inspector General of Police, STF, said following a tip-off, two separate teams headed towards Lopoke. The teams led by ASI Kashmir Singh got information about the presence of two drug smugglers, Karanbir Singh and Sahmsher Singh, on a bridge at Kohali village. The STF team raided the spot.

On seeing cops, the accused tried to escape. Constable Gursewak Singh chased Karanbir Singh and tried to nab him. Karanbir took out his pistol and fired three gunshots at Gursewak, who was hit in the chest. AIG officials claimed that Gursewak did not let the smuggler go even after the injury. Gursewak also fired four gunshots, but missed the target due to injury.

Shamsher Singh alias Shera managed to escape from the spot. The team led by ASI Kashmir Singh nabbed Karanbir and recovered 1 kg of heroin from his possession. RK Jaiswal, AIG, said the department would recommend the name of constable for bravery award and promotion.
