Patna, July 11, 2023- A minor boy was killed while playing “Chor-Police” with his younger brother using a loaded pistol in Bihar’s Kaimur district, police said on Tuesday.

Police said that younger brother Bigan Kumar pressed the trigger of the loaded pistol, which the brothers had found kept below a pillow on a bed, and the bullet pierced into the stomach of elder brother Golu Kumar, 12.
