Ghaziabad: A man was today shot dead and his driver injured when unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants fired at them here, on the outskirts of Delhi, police said.
The incident took place when Mintoo Gurjar was on his way back to Delhi after attending a date in the district court near Hindon barrage on Vasundhara road here, SP city Akash Tomar said.
“Seven assailants on three motor cycles fired upon the car indiscriminately in which both of them received serious injuries,” Tomar said.
A constable, who was near the spot, rushed them to a nearby hospital.
“Mintoo was declared brought dead at the hospital while Nagendra is still undergoing treatment,” the SP said.
Mintoo was a resident of Ghazipur and his driver was a resident of Hasanpur in East Delhi.
Police are suspecting Mintoo’s old enmity with Dharamvir Sethi over a car parking dispute behind the attack.
An FIR has been lodged against Sethi and six unknown assailants for the shootout.
Police are raiding the possible hideouts of the criminals, he said.
