THE INVESTIGATION agency probing the case of murder attempt on financier Karan Singh Phelwan on Friday recovered from Burail in Sector 45 a white blanket used by one of the assailants for hiding the double barrel gun.

Karan suffered two bullet injuries. PGI doctors removed one bullet from his arm and some bullet pellets from one of his legs in a two-hour-long operation. Police sources said although Karan claimed that the assailants were unknown to him, there were chances that the assailants were known to the victim because before shooting, they were engaged in heated arguments with him. Before opening the fire, one of the assailants had hit Karan on his face with the butt of his double barrel gun. The incident took place on February 22.
