Govt not covering up accidental firing by minister: Manipur CM

By The Assam Tribune

IMPHAL, Mar 12 (PTI): Manipur Chief Minister O Ibobi has said the government has no intention of covering up the incident of "accidental firing" by a minister in which state Advocate General N Koteshwar was injured.

While discussing the Manipur Appropriation Bill in the State Assembly yesterday, Ibobi said he had no intention of covering up the incident and a police inquiry was going on after a case was registered in Imphal East district. "It was just an accidental firing but if anyone is found guilty, the law would take its own course," he added.

N Koteshwar, who is now improving after a bullet was removed from his chest, was injured last Saturday when the licensed gun of a minister travelling with him went off accidentally. Koteshwar (50), was travelling with Works Minister K Ranjit and Tribal Development Minister DD Thaisi.
