The two are presently admitted at a private hospital in the city where their condition is said to be stable. Hours after the incident, the Gurugram police arrested two people –Mintoo who is from Faridabad and –Amit belonging to Sohna.

The law enforcement officials are in the process to hunt down other culprits that are involved in the deadly crime. Already notorious for its deteriorating law and order, Sunday's incident again reflected various lapses in maintenance of security.
The entire incident took place when there was substantial number of people who were present in the mall. Moreover the group of people were able to not only enter the mall with the deadly weapons but were able to carry out the attack for minutes inside the commercial premises.
While incidents of thefts, molestation and drunken driving are major complaints that are received from the mall mile, of late there are also various incidents of murder and attempt to murder are also being reported.
This year there have been two attempts where drivers in the fit of rage tried to run over the cops who were trying to stop them. Last year in October, a 34-year-old woman was brutally at the MG road metro station after her jilted lover stabbed her 30 times in broad daylight. Intense gang war resulted in a major shoot out incident at the area with an objective to kill Rakesh Hayatpur. Though he survived, an auto driver unfortunately had to pay with his life.
