Two personnel of the agency went into the ATM and closed the shutter. In the meantime, a gang of four-five armed dacoits coming on bikes from the Kakopothar side tried to force open the ATM�s shutter. Seeing this, the two security personnel of the agency who were in the van resisted the dacoits. At this, one of the dacoits fired at a security personnel named Simu Burhagohain (47), who was hit on his chest. In spite of getting injured, Burhagohain fired back at the dacoits with his SBBL gun and one of the dacoits fell on the ground injured.
