An armed Tarai outfit shot at a police officer on duty at Khadag Municipality of Saptari on Wednesday.

SP Rajendra Bista said a group of assailants travelling on three motorcycles shot at Head Constable Mahendra Yadav at Bishanpur Chowk. Critically injured Yadav, who was rushed to Biratnagar for treatment, was flown to Kathmandu on a helicopter on Thursday. He sustained bullet injuries in his back. Police said the assailants fled after the incident.

Police recovered some pamphlets of the Pragatishil Tarai Mukti Morcha from the incident site. Claiming himself to be the military chief of the underground outfit, Nishanta telephoned the Post and owned up the incident.

Security personnel have been deployed at locations along the Nepal-India border to nab the assailants.
