The incident occurred on Thursday night when the victim, Bedi Ram, was on his way back to his residence in civil dress.
"When Bedi Ram reached old iron bridge near Shastri Park, two bike-borne assailants intercepted him and robbed on gun point. They fired at him when Ram tried to resist," Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Harendra Kumar said.
"The accused escaped after snatching Rs 1,500 and his mobile phone," he said.
