A 12-year-old boy was injured after four unidentified gunmen fired shots in Delhi’s Geeta Colony area early on Monday. The firing took place at around 1 am and lasted for as long as 15 to 20 minutes, a local said.

The attackers had come to shoot down one Mukhtiyar, but a bullet grazed past the shoulder of his younger brother instead, injuring him. The 12-year-old has been admitted to GTB hospital.

“We were sleeping inside our homes when we heard gun shots being fired at around 1 or 1.15 am. The firing lasted for 15-20 minutes. A little boy, in front of whose house the firing was going on, tried to peep out of the door when a bullet grazed past his shoulder. The bullet hit the younger brother on the person who was being attacked,” one of the persons from the neighbourhood told ANI.
