A girl student was injured after unidentified miscreants on a bike shot her near a private educational institute at the Infocity area of Bhubaneswar.

The girl who sustained bullet injuries is currently being treated at a hospital.

Reports said the pillion rider fired bullets at the girl while she was talking to a boy outside the institute. Locals rescued her and rushed her to a city hospital.
