NEW DELHI

In an alleged case of road age, a 47-year-old motorcycle rider was shot at and injured, allegedly by another two-wheeler rider, in Okhla on Thursday evening.

The suspect, police said, opened fire as the victim’s two-wheeler had brushed past his bike.

The injured man is out of danger but the suspect remains unidentified, police said. Mohammad Zaki, the victim, was hit by a bullet in his thigh.

Romil Baaniya, DCP south east, said the police received a PCR call at 9: 50 pm about the incident that happened near the Okhla vegetable market. An investigator said Zaki himself made the call but by the time the police arrived, the shooter had fled.

Zaki told the police that after their motorcycles hit each other, the other person allegedly turned aggressive. He said though he tried to calm the other biker down, he took out a firearm and allegedly shot him on the thigh.

The police rushed Zaki to a hospital from where he was discharged on Friday.

Police booked the unidentified person for attempt to murder (Section 307-IPC) at the Amar Colony police station.

The police are trying to identify the suspect through the description provided by Zaki and asking other locals in the absence of CCTV footage.

“An FIR has been registered. We have rounded up several persons and are interrogating them,” said Baaniya.

A fortnight ago, on November 10, a 24-year-old law student was killed after a scuffle broke out between him and a security guard in Burari.

On September 19, a motorcycle-borne man was run over, allegedly by an advocate, after he asked him not to smoke in front of him.
