Teen shoots self to file false FIR

A teenager allegedly shot himself and approached the police to file an attempt to murder case over personal enmity. Police have arrested the complainant, Bhajanpura-resident Nonu Arora, and two of his accomplices.

Arora, 19, claimed to have been attacked at Krishna Nagar late on Wednesday. He had sustained a gunshot wound on his right thigh and underwent treatment at Swami Dayanand Hospital.

On the basis of Arora’s statement, a case under Indian Penal Code and Arms Act was registered with Krishna Nagar police station.

Arora told police that he was attacked by a former neighbour named Akash Napa. Napa’s family had shifted to east Delhi’s Kondli last year.

A team of local police later apprehended Napa from his house. On being questioned, Napa claimed that he was being framed over a police complaint filed against Arora.
Napa’s father Prakash had filed the complaint last week over harassment along with a local criminal.

The police team then questioned Arora and confronted him with evidence. “He confessed to have shot himself to implicate the Napa family members,” said a police officer. The investigators have also nabbed Arora’s friends Gaurav Sharma and Tarun Kumar.

In his statement, Arora had told police that Napa’s elder brother Vikas used to misbehave with his sister. It was alleged that Vikas was in the illegal business of property encroachment due to which the Arora family was threatened by local goons.

“Arora claimed to have been attacked after he filed a police complaint against Vikas last week,” the officer added. He told police that Napa met him at Krishna Nagar at 10.45 pm on Wednesday.

Napa, however, told police that Arora met him to apologise over the police complaint. Arora had gone to Napa’s house on Wednesday. They had a heated argument after which Arora left the house. Arora later shot himself and made a call to the police control room.

 His statement was recorded at the hospital. Arora, who works as a driver in north Delhi’s Burari, now faces a case of providing false information to police.
