The armoury of the police station was emptied
by the evil doers ,while the roof top was blown
off with the aid of dynamite and the entire
police station , including the asbestos were

7.20pm and destroyed virtually everywhere
while ransacking all rooms while all the doors
were broken in the course of searching
for ammunition .

heavily armed bandits rained bullets on the
police inspector and he was said to have died
on the spot.

“They drove in recklessly and took over the
entire police station. Some even scaled the
fence and took strategic positions. They shot
