CRPF Jawan Anmol Kharat was injured after boiling water was thrown at him by CRPF DIG D K Tripathi.

“The DIG, who was on a recruitment drive, asked the mess staff for hot water to drink. The mess staff Anmol Kharat allegedly brought boiling water and the DIG could not drink it,” a senior CRPF official told ANI.
