1 killed, four injured in firing in Bhajanpura

New Delhi: One person was killed and four others, including the man’s 16-year-old son, were injured today when some unidentified persons allegedly opened fire at them in northeast Delhi’s Bhajanpura area, police said.

The incident took place around 8 AM when Kailash Gupta (40) and son Rajan were heading towards their home in east Delhi’s Harsh Vihar area on their motorcycle.

A car intercepted their motorbike and opened fire on them, a police official said.

The first few bullets missed the father-son duo and hit a tea-seller near a mazar in the area and two passers-by.

By the time locals gathered around and called up police, the accused managed to escape, he said.

Gupta, his son and three others–identified as Banwari, Ram and Javed–were rushed to a hospital where Gupta was declared brought dead and the others were admitted, the official said.

In preliminary investigation, he said, it appears to be a case of personal enmity.

A case has been registered and efforts are on to nab the accused, the official added.
