§ 9. Sir J. D. REES
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the Secretary of State has any information which can be given to the House regarding the attempted assassination of the divisional superintendent of police at Dacca?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. C. Roberts)
A deputy-superintendent of police was fired at, a man named Ram Das shot dead, and a police-constable injured, by a person who, after firing eight or ten shots, escaped, the bystanders making no attempt to stop him. At the time of the outrage the officers were searching for suspects in a recent murder case.
