Man fires gun, but cops file no FIR

Members of the families of three brothers in north-east Delhi’s Jaffarabad area have alleged that police have been protecting a local goon, who was handed over to them for opening fire after a scuffle.

Police say they have taken the statement of people involved and will take action after investigation. The allegations have been made by Nawazish Khan’s family. He lives with his family in Chauhan Bangar and claims that a local goon had opened fire at him and his brothers Kashif and Danish on November 29.

Nawazish alleged that while he was going towards Subhash Mohalla at 9 pm, a group of youth initiated an unprovoked attack. Nawazish claimed that the youth abused him, and began to beat him when he retaliated.

After the gang let Nawazish leave, he made a phone call to his brother Kashif, who soon came to the spot with Danish. However, soon the two groups again indulged in exchanging heated words. During the melee, one of the accused allegedly took out a country-made pistol and opened fire. It is alleged that five rounds were fired, but none on the spot were injured.

The accused were then fleeing from the spot when Kashif managed to overpower one of them. Police was also informed about the incident, after which the youth was handed over to them.

The three brothers identified some of the attackers as Aadil, Michael and Aarif. However, they allege that no FIR has been lodged over the incident. “We know that the youth are local goons and are known to indulge in unprovoked incidents in the area,” Nawazish’s father Aslam said. He also alleged that the detained youth was released by police.

A senior police officer said that the incident is under investigation, and claimed that it could be an incident of personal enmity. “Action will be taken once the allegations are proved in our probe,” the officer said.
