PNB Officer Abducted, Shot Dead in Bihar 48 Hours After Industrialist’s Murder

Gaya: A Punjab National Bank (PNB) officer was abducted and later killed by unidentified criminals in Gaya district of Bihar.

The bank's Customer Service Point (CSP) in-charge Pintu Singh was abducted late on Friday from near Amas, officer in-chrage of Amas Police station Shayam Lal Sarah said.

Singh was kidnapped after 11 pm and is believed to have been shot dead around 2 am on Saturday, according to police. Deep injury marks were found on his head.

Singh's murder came barely 48 hours after a businessman was shot dead in Vaishali district. The back-to-back killings have triggered violent protest by villagers, who blocked the GT Road disrupting traffic for hours, Sarah added.

The industrialist who was shot dead on Thursday was identified as Gunjan Khemka. His son, Gopal Khemka, is a well-known businessman in Patna.

Khemka was targeted on his way to his factory in Hajipur, about 30 km from Patna, Vaishali Superintendent of Police Manavjit Singh Dhillon said.

Police are still in dark and yet to make any breakthrough in the case.

Opposition RJD and Congress leaders have targeted Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for the rise in crime and total collapse of law and order.

"There is no law and order in Bihar. It is free for all for criminals and they do as per their will," RJD spokesperson Bhai Virendar said.
