New Delhi: A former CRPF personnel allegedly shot dead his father over a property dispute in outer Delhi’s Baba Hari Dass Nagar, the police said today.
The incident took place last night and the accused, Digambar, also shot at his step-mother but her condition is stable. He has been arrested, they added.
The pistol used in the crime has also been seized.
The accused was posted in the Central Reserve Police Force as a constable but left his job around three years back.

When his step-mother tried to intervene, he fired at her and the bullet hit her hand.
The police were informed about the incident by locals after the gunshots rang out. They rushed the injured couple to hospital.
Narsingh was declared brought dead while his wife was undergoing treatment, he said.
