Crime branch sources said the incident occurred around 10pm when two assailants opened fire at Shetty when he was travelling in his car. The assailants allegedly trailed the car carrying before firing. Of the three rounds fired, one hit Shetty on the shoulder.

Shetty was taken to the nearby Kokilaben Ambani Hospital. 

A senior crime branch official said although there was no specific threat to Shetty’s life, the incident is suspected to be the handiwork of an underworld gang. The Amboli police have registered an attempt to murder case.

Sources said Shetty’s association with a dismissed encounter specialist was well known. Shetty owns several hotels, pubs and shopping complexes in the western suburbs.
