A courier boy was allegedly shot at by at least three persons after a quarrel in east Delhi's Kalyanpuri, the police said on Monday.

"The victim, identified as Karan, was returning home from a nearby market when a group of three-four persons taunted him over his brother Rahul, who is serving a sentence in Mandoli jail, leading to a heated argument," the police said.

The victim alleged that the accused had often threatened him over his jailed brother, a senior police officer said.

A case was registered and some of the accused have been identified. Teams have been formed to nab them, said Jasmeet Singh, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East).

Police have also scanned the CCTV footage of the area to ascertain the sequence of events. Further investigation is underway, they said.
