The bul­lets smash the win­dow pane, but miss Gehlot. The prop­erty dealer then tries to ram the shooter with his car and crush him against an­other car parked be­side his. The shooter, how­ever, dodges the ve­hi­cle and climbs onto the car.

Gehlot from a coun­try-made semi-au­to­matic weapon.

The video also shows the weapon get­ting jammed after he fires a few rounds. After fix­ing it, he again fires at him and two of the bul­lets hit him on his back and ab­domen. Gehlot died after be­ing ad­mit­ted to a hospi­tal.

Probe re­vealed that Gehlot had al­legedly thrashed a few peo­ple after a dis­pute at his of­fice a few months back, after which he re­ceived a few threats. The men later ap­proached Nandu Gang for re­venge. The cops sus­pect that the shooter could have been a hit­man from the gang that was paid to elim­i­nate Gehlot. Po­lice have iden­ti­fied three other mem­bers of the gang who had aided the shooter.
