NOIDA: Two bike-borne as­sailants shot a book trader at his shop in broad day­light in Barola area of Noida on Thurs­day af­ter­noon. Po­lice said that the vic­tim’s con­di­tion is crit­i­cal and a case against five per­sons has been reg­is­tered.

Cops said that Anil Ku­mar Gupta (48) was at his shop in Barola main mar­ket when two bike-borne as­sailants opened fire on him and he col­lapsed on the ground.

Hear­ing the gun­shots, other traders present in the mar­ket rushed to the shop and the crim­i­nals fled away bran­dish­ing their gun.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the in­ci­dent took place at around 12.30 pm. Lo­cals in­formed po­lice about the in­ci­dent im­me­di­ately and a team of se­nior po­lice of­fi­cials reached the spot.

“Af­ter the in­for­ma­tion was con­veyed, a po­lice team reached the spot and found Gupta ly­ing in a pool of blood. He was rushed to nearby hospi­tal where doc­tors stated his con­di­tion to be crit­i­cal. He is re­ceiv­ing treat­ment at a nearby pri­vate hospi­tal,” said Sh­wetabh Pandey, Circle Of­fi­cer-iii.

Po­lice of­fi­cials said that the in­ci­dent was the fall­out of a per­sonal ri­valry be­tween Gutpa’s ten­ant and his neigh­bor, in which the vic­tim had brought about a com­pro­mise be­tween the two.

“Pre­lim­i­nar­ily investigations shows that one of vic­tim’s neigh­bor and his ten­ant had a fight with each other cou­ple of days be­fore. How­ever, the vic­tim made a com­pro­mise among them, but his neigh­bor Vi­jay Pal took it as his in­sult and threat­ened Anil to kill him.

“Vi­jay pal’s son Vishal has been ac­cused of com­mit­ting the crime, along with his friend San­deep and a case un­der sec­tion 307 of IPC has been reg­is­tered against five per­sons,” a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cial of Sec­tor-49 po­lice sta­tion said.
