“Our soldiers jumped into action based on genuine intelligence information and pursued the offender into the forest, where he ran out of luck.
“While attempting to flee on a motorcycle with the kidnapped elderly woman, our officers and men were involved in a gun duel with the bandit, who was later killed,” the PPRO said.
