New Delhi, Dec 26 (IANS) A 45-year-old man was fired at allegedly by two persons early Monday morning in west Delhi, said police.

The victim, identified as Satish Bharadwaj, a resident of Baghner village in Narela, west Delhi, was shot around 6.30 a.m. near Narela railway gate where he was waiting for a train to go to Panipat. He was rushed to a private nursing home where his condition is said to be out of danger.

Satish works as a supervisor in a private factory in Panipat, Haryana. He goes to Panipat by train everyday.

Satish was shot at from behind. “The bullet pierced his back and exited from his shoulder. Satish has claimed to have identified one of the culprits, his neighbor Praveen, who fled from the spot with his associate after shooting him,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police B.S. Jaiswal. The other accused, who was with Praveen, has not been identified yet.

Satish alleged in his statement that around five days ago he had had a dispute with Praveen. “It might be the reason behind the incident. A probe is on into the matter,” said Jaiswal.

A case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 307, attempt to murder, has been registered against the duo who are on the run and a hunt is on to nab them, said Jaiswal.
