'Shoot on leg, not chest...': Assam CM Himanta on fighting crimes against women

06-07-2021 Tue 15:40

If offenders attempt to escape then a police shootout should be the norm, Himanta Biswa Sarma, Chief Minister of Assam, said in a speech to the Officers-In-Charge (OCs) of all police stations. “When asked whether shootings are becoming more common in the state, I replied that (shootings) should be the norm if criminals are trying to elude police custody," Sarma stated.

If an accused attempts to grab the service gun and flees, for example a rapist, then the law permits firing at such a person on the leg but not on the chest, the CM said.
