Homemaker shoots at thief

SILCHAR, February 9: When most women even with licensed arms at home might not dare to face any midnight intruder or intruders with the intention of committing crime, here is the example of courage and boldness of Anu Devi, wife of a military officer, resident of Pallarbond, Manipur Part I under Lakhipur police station who shot at a thief who broke open the door of her house, entered inside and tried to silence her by  randishing a sharp weapon in order to rob her of her valuables and other costly things. Sensing danger, Anu Devi who was alone in her house past midnight as her husband U Manihar Singha, army officer, was away in active service, did not take any chances and brought out immediately one of the two licensed guns, one in her name, and shot him in the leg. As he lay wounded, she informed the officer– in–charge of Lakhipur police station, Bhupen Bora, who immediately rushed with a team of police to residence of Anu Devi.
Bora was also accompanied by a police team of Banskandi outpost. The thief identified as Sumit Bauri was taken into custody and case No. 34/14 u/s 457/380/511/307 IPC was registered. Bauri was later on admitted in Silchar Medical College and Hospital. (Source - SentinelAssam)
