"Two miscreants have fired using firearm. From the preliminary investigation what we have come to know is that the target was a known person in Nelamangala. We have already contacted the IG central range and have sought for information regarding him," Deputy Commissioner of Police Harsh said.

A massive manhunt has been launched to nab the culprits and the suspected vehicles are being intercepted and checked.
