CHENNAI: The Rajasthan police on Friday arrested four members of a family who allegedly pelted stones at the Tamil Nadu special police team when it tried to nab two robbers. The assault went horribly wrong as Inspector S Periyapandi was shot dead.

The arrested persons - Tejaram, his wife Bidhya and their daughters Suguna and Rajal - were present at Rampura on Tuesday night, when the TN police entered the village in the pursuit of two robbers.

“The four were among the locals who pelted stones at the TN policemen when they entered a brick kiln at Rampura. Further investigations are being conducted to nab the main suspect,” said a senior police officer from Rajasthan.

The TN police went to the village late on Tuesday night to arrest the suspects when they were allegedly attacked by locals who threw stones at them. Then someone got hold of a gun and shot Periyapandi dead. Inspector Munisekar had also suffered injuries and was hospitalised.
