Bike-borne goons shoot at trader

New Delhi, August 26, 2013, DHNS:

A 46-year-old businessman was shot at by two motorcycle-borne assailants over his refusal to hand over a cash-filled bag in south east Delhi’s Govindpuri on Monday afternoon.

According to police, the incident took place around 5 pm when Vivek Sood  was returning home from his garment factory in Tughlaqabad Extension.

Before the attack, Vivek, a resident of Gurgaon, had gone to Punjab National Bank in Govindpuri.

He told police that he had a bag filled with close to Rs 3 lakh kept in the Maruti SX4 car he was travelling in.

When Vivek reached Aadi Marg, he was intercepted by two men on a motorcycle. They asked him to open his car’s window and got into a conversation.

Finding the street empty, the accused started fighting with him and asked Vivek to get out of the car. When he refused, they took out a country-made pistol and threatened him.

“When Vivek came out, the men tried to take the bag from the car, an attempt resisted by the victim, and a scuffle ensued,” said a police officer.

Even as the scuffle was on, Vivek threw the bag away. As soon as he did that, one of the men allegedly opened fire and a bullet hit his stomach.

Hearing the commotion, locals gathered at the spot but the assailants had fled by then. A call was made to the police control room and Vivek was taken to a nearby hospital.

The bag was found to be missing from the spot where it landed after Vivek threw it, but it is not clear whether the accused took it with them or somebody else picked it up.

“Vivek’s condition remained critical even after he underwent an operation,” the officer added.P Karunakaran, deputy commissioner of police (south east) said two live cartridges have been recovered from the spot and has been sent for examination.

A case of attempt to murder has been registered with Govindpuri police station.DH News Service
