He was rushed to JNM Hospital in the town. However, soon he had to transfer to Calcutta as the bullet, which stucked to the left side of his shoulder, could not be removed there. His friends said: “We suddenly heard a deafening sound and seen Kartick has fallen on the ground. He was bleeding. It appeared that he was hit by a stray bullet targeted for any other person”.
