Dog dispute in park leads to firing at house in New Delhi
New Delhi: In a bizarre turn of events, a youth who took his pet dog to a park in south Delhi - and entered into an argument with another local who objected to the canine's entry - ended up facing a group of goons, who even fired several rounds at his residence, police said today.
While the youth's brother received a minor injury caused by a cracked pellet police registered a case under relevant sections of law and two persons who were later arrested, said DCP (South) Prem Nath.
The incident was reported last evening when Monty took his pet canine to a park in Humayunpur Colony for a stroll and another youth, Rohit, who was present there, objected to the dog's entry in the park premises, leading to a heated among argument among them, police said.
Thereafter, Monty, along with the dog, left the park and sent his mother and brother Sunny to confront Rohit, who by then, had called up the PCR and reported about a quarrel disrupting peace in the locality.
A police team reached the spot and asked Monty's mother and brother to come to the nearest police post for narrating their version of the story. By then, Rohit allegedly summoned a few goons from nearby localities to attack Monty at his residence, said a police official.
When the group started hurling abuses, Monty and Sunny came outside to confront them. Suddenly, a miscreant in the group allegedly pulled out a gun and opened fire. Most of the bullets ended up hitting the walls and Sunny sustained a minor injury caused by a cracked pellet, said the official.
The locals reported the matter and another police team had to be rushed to the spot immediately. But the group had dispersed by then. However, the CCTV installed at the premises of a neighbouring building had captured the entire incident.
Later, police registered a case under relevant sections of law and two persons, identified as Ravinder and Prashant, none of them residents of Humayunpur, were arrested, said DCP (South) Prem Nath.
However, the prime accused, Rohit, and his unidentified associates are still at large, the official added.
