What did IAS Varinder Kumar Sharma say?
IAS Varinder Kumar Sharma on Monday said, "At 11 pm in the night when the entire world was bursting firecrackers, I was sitting in my bedroom. Suddenly, a bullet entered my house from the back window. The back window saved me from being hit by the bullet. I was saved because the bullet pierced the wooden frame of the window. When it came inside, its impact was deceased. That's why there was no deadly incident took place. But, the bullet fired came near the bed where I was sitting.
If it had come through the mirror, it might have been dangerous. I don't have any personal animosity. Therefore, I don't think someone pointed at me and fired the bullet. I think the bullet came from celebratory firing on Diwali. I have filed a complaint to the Police, now it is up to the Police."
