TIRUCHY: A 25-year-old man was arrested on Saturday as one of the pellets fired by him at birds hit his friend “inadvertently” during hunting in a forest near Manapparai on July 30.

According to police, Raj (40) and his friend Sounder of Kannoothu, near Manapparai, were in the habit of hunting birds with a country-made gun. On the day of the incident, Raj kept cornering the birds from one part of the forest and Sounder kept firing at the birds when a pellet hit Raj on his thigh.

An injured Raj was admitted to a private hospital.

Based on a complaint from Puthanatham VAO Selvaraj, Manapparai police registered a case, arrested Sounder and seized the country-made gun from him.
