Odisha Health Minister Naba Kishore Das dies after being shot at by ASI

Since Naba Das had police security the shooting has called into severe doubt the effectiveness of security measures



Odisha health minister shot at by ASI, condition critical; airlifted to Bhubaneshwar

Odisha Health Minister Naba Kishore Das succumbed to gun shot injuries after he was shot at by an assistant sub-inspector on Sunday at Jharsuguda.

The minister was on his way to attend a programme at Brajrajnagar in the district. The ASI shot Das twice in his chest as he was alighting from his vehicle, reports said.

Das’s supporters at the spot picked him up and rushed him to a hospital by ambulance. Since his condition was not improving, Das was airlifted to Apollo Hospital in Bhubaneswar, where his condition further deteriorated.

Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik reached the hospital to meet Das.

The crime branch has started investigating the shooting. Police have taken the ASI, Gopaldas, into custody. In the interrogation, the accused has not revealed why he shot the Minister.

Following the firing incident, BJD activists conducted a dharna, which raised tensions at the scene. Given that the minister was allegedly shot at close range, it is believed the shooting was pre-planned.

Since Naba Das, who was supposed to attend a large-scale event, also had police escort, the occurrence has called into severe doubt the effectiveness of security measures.

After learning the news over the phone, senior BJD leader Prasanna Acharya said he was extremely surprised. It’s too soon to identify who is responsible or why it occurred. We ask for God to hasten his healing. Police will conduct a thorough inquiry, and we condemn the incident, he said.

However, Brajrajnagar SDPO Gupteswar Bhoi said that it is unclear what prompted the ASI to fire at the Minister. The concerned official has been arrested and is currently being questioned.

The SDPO denied knowing who gave the ASI the order to shoot at the minister when questioned about it.

The officer said that Tejinder, also known as Gorkha Baba, was very active on social media and often posts pictures of himself brandishing different weapons due to which he’s wanted in a separate case registered against him at Malaud police station.

The official further said that Tejinder has been booked under sections 107/151 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and two other aides who accompanied him, have also been taken into custody and are being questioned.

In a statement, Senior Superintendent of Police Rural Amritsar Zone, Satinder Singh said the seven accused were nabbed along with six illegal 12-bore weapons and were booked under the Arms Act along with their leader Amritpal Singh, who is still at large.
