New Details In Money Lender Shooting: Police Meets Indian Community Leaders

The Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIGP), Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Tumusiime Katsigazi, has reassured the Indian community in Uganda of their security following the shooting of an Indian national, Uttam Bhandari. Bhandari, who was a money lender in Kampala, was shot dead by Police Constable Ivan Wabwire at around 1 pm on Friday.

In a meeting with a delegation of the Indian business community, Katsigazi emphasized that the shooting should not be regarded as a case of organized or targeted crime, but rather as an isolated incident. He expressed the readiness of the police force to protect all business communities, urging them not to let this incident discourage them from conducting business.

Katsigazi further assured the community that authorities are working to have Wabwire apprehended. “The authorities are actively working to apprehend and prosecute the suspect,” he said. He also conveyed his condolences to the close family members, friends, and the entire Indian business community residing in Uganda.

Katsigazi disclosed that the police force has contributed Shs5 million towards the burial arrangements as a gesture of support. Available information indicates that Wabwire came to Bhandari’s office to get calculations after obtaining two loans, one being deducted from his salary. They calculated for him, and it was around Shs2.13 million. On Friday, Wabwire returned and started arguing with one of the workers, leading to the shooting.

In conclusion, the DIGP has assured the Indian community in Uganda of their security and commitment to ensuring that business operations continue without any fear. The police force is actively pursuing the suspect and working to bring him to justice. The community has received support from the authorities during this difficult time.
