A man fired a shot inside the store of a 31-year-old man Monday evening allegedly after he was asked to return the money he had borrowed from the shopkeeper, the Delhi Police said.
According to the police, they received a call about a firing at Delhi’s Virat Market on Monday.
The police rushed to the spot in the national capital’s Dakshinpuri area where they met the complainant – Amit, a senior police officer said.
