Some armed miscreants allegedly tried to ambush additional deputy commissioner, Noney district Sheikh Abdul Hakim while traveling in his vehicle near Setjang village CRPF camp near Kotlen under Noney Police station in Noney district on Tuesday evening.
Speaking to the Imphal Free Press over the phone, Hakim from Khetrigao said he along with eight other people, including his officials and relatives were returning from Noney in a Honda City (MN-01-AG-2015) and a Scorpio ( MN07D 3263) and heading towards Imphal.
When they were reaching near Setjang village CRPF camp, some armed miscreants shot three rounds at the vehicle he was riding from the hills side around 6.05 pm.
He said one of the bullets hit the window pane of the driver side but no one was injured. After reporting the incident at Setjang CRPF camp, he reached Imphal.
