Guwahati: Two CRPF personnel suffered bullet injuries following a brawl in Assam‘s Nagaon district, a senior police officer said on Sunday.

The personnel, both driver-constables of the CRPF’s 34 Battalion at the Katamari camp, have reportedly engaged in altercations in the past, too, due to some personal dispute.

“On Saturday night, one jawan barged into the barrack of the other and a fight ensued. One of them was shot but he continued to engage in the duel even after the bullet injury and later shot at his adversary,” Nagaon Superintendent of Police Anand Mishra told PTI.

Both the injured personnel were brought to the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital here for treatment, where their condition is stated to be stable, the SP said.
