15 Detained For Blank Firing At Garjanbahal Coal Washery In Sundargarh – N.F Times


Sundargarh: As many as 15 persons have been detained in connection with an alleged firing incident after a group clash at Garjanbahal coal washery under Hemgiri police limits in Sundargarh district late on Thursday.

The confrontation, stemming from a suspected rivalry between two business partners at the coal washery, led to the alleged firing of over 200 rounds and the hurling of bombs. The altercation, involving parties from Raigarh and Sundargarh, resulted in injuries to six individuals, with some being admitted to hospitals. The washery was vandalised and several vehicles were also damaged. The police are currently investigating the incident.

“Last night a clash erupted between two parties at a coal washery. Two youths of Sundargarh have been shifted to a Raigarh-based hospital for treatment. A police team from Odisha has reached Chhattisgarh to interrogate the injured. An investigation is underway and necessary action will be taken,” SDPO Himanshu Bhusan Behera told reporters.
