Chief weightlifting coach of the National Institute of Sports (NIS) here Gagan Bihari Bariki got his leg fractured when the stray cattle attacked him on a city road. Bariki, who has been serving at the NIS for the past around 20 years, became the victim of a bullfight on the road and landed in the hospital with a major fracture in his leg.

The issue of the stray cattle once again came to light with the accident of the coach. However, the municipal corporation has been acting as a mute spectator on the issue as this is not an isolated case. Such incidents have been occurring at regular intervals.

Narrating the horrific incident, Bariki said that on Tuesday evening he, along with his wife, went for shopping at Adalat Bazar on a two-wheeler, when two fighting banged into his scooter.

Bariki said that one of the bulls fell on his leg and his thigh bone broke into two pieces. He said he was rushed to the hospital where doctors recommended him to operate his leg to install plates in that.
