Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Unidentified men opened fire on a property dealer in Gandhinagar on the intervening night of Sunday-Monday, police said.
The police added that the man sustained injuries in his leg and was rushed to the hospital by his friends, where his condition is reported to be stable.
Station house officer of Gandhinagar police station Arun Sharma said that the man who sustained injuries in the incident had been identified as Gyaan Singh Meena, a property dealer.
He told the police that he was passing through Badwai village in Gandhinagar along with his friend by a car on the intervening night of Sunday-Monday. During this, several persons sitting inside another car signalled them to stop. As Meena stopped his car, the group abused him and said he committed theft at their farm house.
A scuffle ensued during which one of the accused opened fire. The bullet hit Meena’s left leg and he fell on the ground while the accused fled. Meena’s friend drove him to the hospital.
SHO Sharma said that the efforts were on to nab the accused who shot at Meena.
