Gurgaon The wife and teenage son of a judge were allegedly shot at by his personal security guard in a crowded market area in sector-49 here Saturday, police said.

Police said the incident occurred around 3.30 pm when Additional Sessions Judge Krishan Kant’s wife Ritu and son Dhruv had gone for shopping in the Arcadia market.
They were accompanied by the judge’s guard, Mahipal. “Some locals informed the police about gunshots being fired outside the Arcadia market. When a police team reached the spot, they found Ritu and Dhruv lying in a pool of blood,” Gajraj said. She said Ritu has suffered bullet injury in her chest, while Dhruv in his head. “They were taken to the Medanta Hospital where they are undergoing treatment but their condition is critical,” according to the officer.
Gajraj said the police team could not promptly find Mahipal there. “He was later arrested from Faridabad.” Gurgaon police PRO Subhash Bokan told PTI Mahipal was being interrogated to establish the reason why he opened fire. A video shot by a passer-by showed the suspected assailant in uniform trying to lift the judge’s son and put him in a car, but fled the spot when he could not do so.
