A 21-year-old man was severely injured when he was allegedly shot by a policeman outside whose house he was drinking liquor.
Shashank, a Delhi University student, and his two friends were drinking alcohol in a car parked outside the residence of sub-inspector Sanjay Bhardwaj, posted in Saharanpur, senior superintendent of police KS Emmanuel said.
Bhardwaj objected to their drinking and an argument ensued, following which he went inside his house, came out with a gun and fired at them.
The bullet hit Shashank in the back. His friends immediately rushed him to a nearby hospital, where his condition is critical.
Ghaziabad Police has taken up the issue with Saharanpur SSP and demanded departmental action against the sub-inspector. Bhardwaj has not been arrested yet, Emmanuel said.
