A jewellery shop owner was grievously injured when two bike-riding persons shot at him at Uliyan in the Kadma Police Station area late on Saturday night when he was closing the store.

Ganesh Chandra (38) was rescued by some local residents and was rushed to Tata Main Hospital. He has sustained injury in the abdomen and the single pellet which trapped inside was taken out after he was operated upon early on Sunday morning. 

Chandra was turned around when the two accused fired two shots from close range, one of which hit his abdomen. The other was a misfire.

The attackers had shawls wrapped around themselves, while also covering their faces.They had sped away towards Anil Sure Path after the attack. 

A police team reached the spot within 10 minutes of the incident.

Kadma Police Station OC Manoj Thakur said that the reason behind the attack was not clear yet.

"Though the victim is out of danger now, he is not in a condition to speak. We will be able to get an idea behind the gun-shot attack on him after getting a statement from him,” he told The Telegraph Online on Sunday.

He said the reason behind the attack might be extortion or a family affair. 

"We tried to get CCTV footage of the incident, but there were no surveillance cameras nearby. We could not get clear footage from a camera which is installed at a little distance away from the spot," said the OC, adding that they are hopeful of detecting the case soon.
