A 22-year-old transporter,who rents out trucks to the Jindal Power Plant in Raigarh,Chhattisgarh,was shot at by unidentified persons in North Delhi.
Mohit,a resident of Jhakoda village in Jhajjar,Haryana,was on his way to Bahadurgarh around 11 pm on Friday when two unidentified men tried to stop his car as he was reaching Kishengarh in Sarai Rohilla,North Delhi. When his car stopped,the men fired two rounds and one hit him on his left hand.
The duo fled the spot after firing. Mohit was rushed to the nearby Bara Hindu Rao Hospital by police personnel who reached the spot after he made a PCR call. Doctors said his condition was stable.
Mohit told police that his trucks,rented out to Jindal Power Plant in Raigarh,transported coal to the plant. Police said prima facie they had not been able to confirm the motive behind the shooting. Had the motive been robbery,the assailants would have taken cash or valuables from Mohit. We will trace the accused soon, an officer said.
A case of attempt to murder has been registered at the Sarai Rohilla police station.
