Juveniles nabbed for firing at man in revenge

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Two juveniles have been nabbed for allegedly firing at a man near Mundka metro station for exacting revenge over their cousin's killing.

The juveniles were apprehended by the Police Control Room staff while one of their accomplices fled from the spot, the police said.

Yesterday, while patrolling in the PCR van around the metro station, an assistant sub-inspector and a constable heard gunshots in the area, said Monika Bhardwaj, Deputy Commissioner of Police (PCR).

They started driving towards the area from where the sound was heard and saw three suspects fleeing on a motorcycle, she said.

The police personnel followed them and nabbed two of them while the third fled.

The two juveniles told police that one of their cousins was killed by one Shekhar in Kanjhawala last year, said the officer.

To take revenge for their cousin's murder, they hatched a plan to kill Shekhar for which they came to Mundka. They fired a round at him while he was driving a Gramin Sewa vehicle. The bullet hit him on shoulder.

When they tried to fire another round, it got stuck in the gun's chamber and they fled from the spot, she said.

Shekhar was rushed to hospital by another PCR van and is currently undergoing treatment.
