Eight injured in Paradip Oil Refinery firing

Bhubaneswar: As many as eight people including some labourers were injured at Paradip Oil Refinery as CISF jawans allegedly opened fire at the labourers on Monday. The seven injured have been shifted to the SCB Medical College in Cuttack where condition of four is reportedly critical.

Scuffle between the jawans and the labourers gained momentum when some workers without gate pass reportedly tried to force enter into the plant premises at gate no 4. The security forces allegedly opened fire at the labourers when situation went beyond control.
As soon as news about the firing spread, irate mob ransacked the CISF control room near gate no 4. Police have reached the spot and the situation is under control.
