Cop kills Dy Commandant, surrenders

Mumbai, May 24
The CISF constable Raj Namdeo, who shot dead his Deputy Commandant A. Karandekar and took hostage six colleagues, surrendered tonight.

Airport officials said Namdeo surrendered at 0040 hrs after he talked to his parents.

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Chhagan Bhujbal and Deputy Commissioner of Police Bipin Bihari were present when he gave himself up, officials said.

The 49-year-old Deputy Commandant, hailing from Pimpri near Pune, was critically wounded when constable Raj Namdeo, apparently piqued over the non-sanction of leave, opened fire from his self loading rifle (SLR) at around 5.30 pm, airport officials said. PTI
