A 45-year-old man was killed and three others, including his son, were injured in north-east Delhi’s Bhajanpura on Tuesday when unidentified men in a car opened fire at them.

The incident occurred around 8.15 am. According to the police, three or four men in a car (Maruti Swift) waylaid the father and son, who were on a motorcycle. The father, Kailash Gupta, is dead while his son, Rajan Gupta, in his 20s, is critically injured and admitted at the Guru Teg Bahadur Hospital.
