The Constable’s service rifle fell and one of the lady pillion riders picked it.

The Constable collected the rifle from her and corked it and he hit the suspect with it and the rifle went off incidentally and hit the deceased who was walking about three metres from the scene on the right ribs.

The victim was rushed to Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for treatment but was pronounced dead but the body has since been deposited at same hospital morgue for preservation and autopsy.
