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.

A tea shop owner and a passerby were also injured in the firing.

After the shooting, the assailant’s car also hit a passerby, breaking his leg. They soon fled the scene.

Unconfirmed reports said the deceased was a property dealer and he and his son lived in Harsh Vihar. The police are still trying to identify the motive of the crime.
