According to a crime branch official who was at the scene the two persons wearing helmets came on a bike from the Bandstand side and fired four to five rounds towards the building and in the air.

“The CCTV footage quality is very poor and it was dark, so the bike's registration number was not clear. The rider and pillion both were wearing helmets. We are taking help of technical experts to clear the CCTV footage and get a few leads in the matter,” added the crime branch official.
