“One of our driver who was driving our rented vehicle sustained injuries after some of the brickbats hit on his body that stormed inside the window glass. After finding no other way out to disperse the mob, our team fired in open to disperse them. After the miscreants fled, the police team returned back to police headquarters with the seized materials”, said Chakraborty.

On being asked specifically on any arrests, he informed this newspaper that no one had been arrested yet in this regard but the investigation was underway.
