A property dispute between two families of the same village in Gurgaon led to a shooting incident in the ICU of Sunrise Hospital on Tuesday.

Six men barged into the hospital and fired eight bullets at a man and his son, who are now in critical condition. The attack came after a fight between the two families outside a court in Gurgaon, where they had come for the hearing of their property dispute case.

Satbir, 50, and son Yogendra, 26, residents of Khandsa village, have been locked in a land dispute with another family, who also lives in the same village.

“Family members from both sides, including the father and the son, were at the court on Tuesday. After the hearing ended, the two families started arguing, ending in a fight outside the court,” said a police officer.

Satbir and Yogendra, who were injured then, were taken to Sunrise Hospital and admitted to the intensive care unit.

Then some 50 people from the other family followed the duo to the hospital in several cars. They overpowered the hospital security guards with an intention to kill Satbir and Yogendra, police said.

At least six men managed to enter the ICU and opened fire. Police got a call from the hospital at 3:27 pm, and by the time they reached the spot, all the accused had fled.

“Eight rounds were fired in the ICU, though we found five spent cartridges. The victims are in critical condition, and have been shifted to Medanta Medicity Hospital,” said deputy commissioner of police (east) Maheshwer Dayal.

A case has been filed with Kherki Daula police station. “The victims’ family members are helping us in identifying the accused,” said Dayal.

“The shooters were caught by the hospital’s CCTVs, and our team has the footage,” he added.

“The victims were just shifted from the emergency room to the ICU, and we were moving them on the beds when six persons barged in. One of them opened fired and fled,” said an ICU attendant.
