Man refuses to give away car, shoots at his parents

A man shot at his parents outside his house at Dwarka in southwest Delhi on Sunday. His parents are out of danger and admitted to a private hospital in Gurgaon. The accused is still absconding, police said.

Police said Amit’s parents Brahm Prakash, 49, and Savita Devi, 45, who live in Jat Khor village in north Delhi, had come to his apartment at Platinum Heights complex in Dwarka sector 18, where he lives with his wife and children on Sunday.

Amit, 26, was in possession of a Maruti Ertiga which was registered in the name of his mother, but he had not insured the vehicle and also was not allowing his parents to take the car away, said an investigating officer.

On Sunday, his father along with Amit’s elder brother came to his home and asked him for the car keys, which Amit refused.

Brahm Prakash then ordered a crane to pick the vehicle from there to take to his village.
When the tow van arrived, and started lifting the car, Amit got furious and pulled out a pistol and shot several rounds towards his parents and brother – who were standing outside the building – from his apartment’s balcony.

“One bullet hit Amit’s father on the hip and other on the leg. Another bullet hit his mother’s leg,” said a police officer.

According to the building’s guards, they heard the bullet shots around 12.17 am on Monday.

“We were at the gate when around 12.17 am, we heard gunshots. Initially, I thought that it had happened somewhere else, but I got a call from another security guard who was patrolling the area.

“He said bullets were fired inside the complex only. I got scared and opened the gate fearing criminals might shoot at us seeing the closed gate,” said security guard Mukesh Kumar.

As the guards were still ascertaining the reasons behind the firing, a car carrying Amit’s injured parents, being driven by their eldest son, went past the gate. Amit followed them in his car.

“Around 12.20 am, a car with the injured parents crossed the gate, which was followed by another car in which Amit was driving. He rolled down his window and warned us to run away, verbally abusing us, while brandishing his pistol,” Kumar added.

The guards informed police  immediately and in 10 minutes, they arrived at the spot.
One of the RWA members said Amit and his father are into liquor-making business and distribution.

Amit had earlier also created ruckus in the society when the guard had not allowed his relatives to enter.

“A case of attempt to murder is registered with Dwarka North police station but the accused is still absconding,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (southwest) R A Sanjeev.
