Kumar was stated to be out of danger in a hospital.

Police officer Rajpal said the shooting appeared to be a case of rivalry between Ramgarh and Rithoj villages.

"A few months ago, all the employees from Ramgarh were replaced by people from Rithoj village," he said. Kumar belonged to Rithoj.

"We have booked more than a dozen people from Ramgarh for attempt to murder," Rajpal said.
