The Deccan Gymkhana police on Monday registered an offence against a teacher of Loyala school in connection with the incident in which a cadet was hit by a bullet during a firing practice at the National Cadet Corps (NCC) Group headquarters on Senapati Bapat Road on February 1.

"An offence under Section 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide) of the Indian Penal Code has been registered against the teacher, Amod Anil Ghanekar, who is also the NCC officer. We have not yet arrested him. There was sufficient information obtained during investigation to lodge an offence against Ghanekar.
