Unidentified bikers took point blank shots at BJP Youth Wing leader Kundan Singh Chauhan at Ghantaghar area today evening.
The biker duo was wearing masks and they fled the area after shooting at Kundan, who fortunately escaped with a minor injury as the bullet caught his arm.
Kundan is being treated at MB hospital and he has been reported to be out of danger. The sudden firing at 4:30pm in a crowded market place sensationalized the situation and the onlooker as well as shopkeepers were in shock.
Members of the BJYM immediately shut down shops in the market to avoid further escalation of the situation.
As per information received, at 4:30pm Kundan was sitting in his shop when two masked men on a bike approached his shop and fled after taking a shot at him. Reasons for the firing are yet not known, but a property dispute seems to be one of the reasons, as per the police.
Kundan Singh Chauhan is the President of the BJYM Sundar Singh Bhandari Yuva Morcha. Post holders and members of BJYM gathered in the area and expressed their resentment.
