Bayalis Mouza: A six-year-old girl was injured after being shot at reportedly by a seven-year-old boy with a gun meant to drive away monkeys in Raghunathpur village under Sadar block today.
The minor girl sustained injuries in her waist. She was admitted to a hospital in Bhubaneswar.
The girl’s father Shantanu Jena later lodged a complaint at Kandarpur police station alleging that the incident was a fall-out of past enmity.
