A man, who allegedly shot himself in order to offload a debt, was arrested in Uttar Pradesh's Bulandshahr district, the police said. Ali Mohammed, who owed Rs 6 lakh to a friend, filed a complaint by himself on Saturday alleging that some people fired gunshots at him and two of his friends and looted Rs 2.50 lakh, a police official told reporters last evening.

Sustained interrogation revealed that Mohammed, along with his accomplices, had staged the attack so that he would not have to pay the debt. Mohammed did not return the money inspite of giving many assurances. Even the bullet injury on him was self-inflicted, the police official said.
