A group of five to seven men, who were in an inebriated condition, started firing indiscriminately at the locals which left four persons including a 12-year-old girl seriously injured at East Delhi’s Krishna Nagar area on Monday night.
According to the police, the incident took place around 11 pm when the group of men who were drinking at a property dealer’s shop went to a nearby <g data-gr-id="23">dhaba</g>.
“One of them went to the <g data-gr-id="27">dhaba</g> and started demanding rotis. This led to a scuffle between the chef and that person which was further aggravated when he started firing indiscriminately in the air. A 12-year-old girl Suman, who was standing nearby, got shot,” said Bhairon Singh Gurjar, Deputy Commissioner of Police (East).
“On hearing <g data-gr-id="24">gun shots</g>, locals of the area started pelting stones at the group of men who somehow managed to flee from the spot,” he added.
