Angry at his sister’s love marriage, a young man allegedly shot and wounded her father-in-law after a motorcycle chase in Mukherjee Nagar area, police said on Thursday. On Wednesday night, Inderjeet and his son Ved Prakash, who were riding a motorcycle, were chased by Vikas and Mukesh on another motorbike. Vikas opened fire on them and a bullet hit Inderjeet in his back, a senior police officer said.
But Inderjeet and Prakash managed to get hold of the attackers after a chase and handed over them to police, he said.
Inderjeet was admitted to a hospital and Prakash was released after first-aid, he said.
Prakash told police his elder brother, Rohit, had a love marriage with Vikas’s sister because of which he was angry with his family. Vikas attacked them to exact revenge on the family, police said.
Two country-made pistols with used cartridges and four live cartridges were found in Vikas’s bag, they said.
