The victim sustained a bullet injury on his leg. He is reported to be out of danger.
The police said Sachin Singh, 25, resident of Madanpuri, Gurgaon, owned a mobile phone shop at Vyapar Kendra in Palam Vihar.
At 9 pm, Singh closed his shop and was leaving for home. The moment he was about to sit in his car, an unidentified man shouted from front, while another grabbed him from behind.
