As Kailash Gupta fell to the ground after being shot at by armed assailants, his 16-year-old son — who received three bullet injuries on his legs — limped to a nearby tea shop to escape the gunfire.
Prabhu Singh, who runs the shop, said Rajan ran for his life when the man began shooting.
“His legs were injured and he limped towards my shop. Just as he reached the shop, the assailant fired in his direction. It missed the boy but ended up hitting an auto-driver, Ram Lakhan, who comes to my shop often for tea. The boy was screaming for help and writhing in pain,” said Singh.
He added, “I narrowly escaped. Just 10 minutes before the incident, I was standing in the same place Ram Lakhan was.”

Singh said after the assailants fled, a police constable took the injured to the hospital. “I saw the boy’s father on the ground. He was still alive then…There was blood everywhere. Later, a few policemen came to take samples of the blood in my shop,” he added.
Meanwhile, Banwari Lal (64), a security guard, was hit by a bullet while he was passing through the area.
“I was passing by the area when I heard gunshots. One of the bullets hit my left shoulder and I fell down. It all happened so quickly,” said Lal.
