He and his friend Mohit had ordered food at the shop on the Nangloi-Najafgarh Road.

Suddenly, Sanjay, 37, pulled out a pistol and fired thrice at the victims.
As the suspects fled, Lalit was rushed to a hospital by the locals.

Police took Mohit’s statement and registered a case of attempt to murder against the assailants.

He was later referred to MGS Hospital in Punjabi Bagh because of a bullet in the head.
Police said his condition continued to remain critical at the time of filing this report.
