OC, Sitaramdera said they are probing into the FIR lodged by Billa. Singh said they are investigating the incident. Mukhe was arrested as he has been accused in the gun shot incident. He said that the police will disclose further only after proper investigation.
Mukhe who had always been in controversy in the steel city for the past one decade was elected the CGPC in 2018 for a three years term.
