DCP (south-east) Esha Pandey said the dentist filed a complaint, after which police registered a case at the Kalkaji police station. Pandey said that no one was hurt in the firing. “They fled the spot after firing one round. The crime team has inspected the spot,” she said.

Police said they are examining CCTV footage, which an officer said shows the two assailants on a motorcycle wearing helmets. Eyewitnesses told police that at around 1.20pm, the two men arrived at the building where the clinic is located, hurled abuse and fired one shot.

A police officer, who asked not to be named, said that the bullet, fired by the pillion rider, hit a register inside the doctor’s clinic.

HT contacted the doctor on his cellphone listed on search engines, but he was not available for comment.
