Robbers fire at man twice, try to snatch his cell phone

A 32-year-old man was shot at by unidentified men in east Delhi’s Khajoori Khas for refusing to part with his mobile phone.

Umesh got two bullet injuries, but is said to be out of danger. He lives at Sadatpur in Karawal Nagar and earns a living selling hair clutchers. He was out for a walk at 6.30 am when the incident took place.

Police said when he was near Aadharshila Public School, two men on a motorcycle approached him. They stopped the vehicle and asked him to hand over his mobile phone to them.

Umesh refused, upon which the pillion rider tried to snatch the phone from him. He held on to his phone and raised an alarm.

The motorcycle rider chose to speed away without the phone, but the pillion rider pulled out a pistol and shot at Umesh twice from the running motorcycle. One bullet hit Umesh in the knee while the second one entered his stomach. Then fell unconscious.

He was found by a passer-by, who called the police control room. He was rushed to Guru Tegh Bahadur Hospital, where the bullets were removed. He is out of danger, police said.
