Ranchi, Feb 28 (IANS) A senior Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) official was shot at by an unidentified men in Jharkhand’s Dhanbad city early Sunday, police said.

Bhaumik has been admitted to a Burnpur hospital in neighbouring West Bengal. Doctors attending to him said his condition is now out of danger.
‘We are investigating the case from two angles. This could be a case of theft. As Bhaumik resisted the robbery attempt, he could have been shot at. Or it could be a pre-planned move to kill him,’ a police official told IANS by telephone. Dhanbad is around 240 km from Ranchi.
