He was arrested and later released on bail. He held enmity with the family for filing a case against him and had planned revenge. So, he executed the plan to shoot Dinesh.”
Police said while Dinesh was recovering in the hospital, the accused had made a phone call to him and threatened to shoot him again, following which a third FIR was lodged against him.
The crime branch of sector 10 arrested the accused on Monday from Sohna and recovered a country made gun from him, that he had procured from Rajasthan.
