Puri: Two dreaded criminals Seyamat Khan and Biswaranjan Sahoo were injured on late Monday in two separate encounters here at Baseli Sahi and Talabania areas respectively.
Seyamat aka Tiki Mian has more than 10 criminal cases lodged against him in various Police stations in Puri district. Tiki ran a sand mafia business in addition to other illegal activities in the holy town. Meanwhile, Biswaranjan aka Bisu dealt with brown sugar and contraband cough syrup business.
Both of them featured on Puri Police’s most wanted list and the cops were on a lookout for these two.
Based on a tip-off, Baseli Sahi and Talabania Police attempted to nab Tiki and Bisu. The criminals fired shots at the cops and sought to escape. The Police retaliated accordingly and both the offenders were injured. Gun, live bullets and a bike was seized from Bisu.
Both of them have been admitted to District Hospital. Since Bisu’s condition worsened, he was shifted to SCB Medical College and Hospital, Cuttack.
The double encounter was a result of Puri Police’s attempt to make the holy town crime-free.
