Bhilai, Oct 1 (UNI) In a fit of rage, a Central Industrial Security Force constable shot dead a Sub-Inspector and later committed suicide at the CISF office attached to the public sector Bhilai Steel Plant here late last night.
Additional Superintendent of Police (City) Dr Sanjeev Shukla said it appeared that Constable Balbir Singh had killed Sub-Inspector R P Singh and later shot himself dead near the CISF office here.
