On Saturday, at 9:00 pm Vishnu entered the girl's house and after a brief argument and fired two gunshots at her. One of the bullets hit the shoulder of the girl and she fainted after the incident. Even though Vishnu was able to flee from the spot he was arrested three hours after the incident.

We are now hoping that the minor who has been injured after the incident recovers so that we can get inputs from her on what actually transpired. We have been told that the boy was troubling the girl for the last six months," said a police official from Gurugram police.
