“As he stepped out of the car, he heard a loud noise and found himself shot in the foot and bleeding,” said the ACP.
A resident of Pinjore, he has been admitted to the civil hospital in Panchkula.
The other injured person has been identified as Heera Lal, who works as a mechanic in the Manimajra auto market.
