A 26-year-old person died and three others were injured after two men on a motorcycle allegedly fired at them in suburban Kandivli, police said on Saturday.

The assailants came on two bikes and opened fire on a few people in which one person died while three others received minor injuries and further investigation is underway," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) zone 11 Vishal Thakur.

According to the police, the prime accused in the case, Sonu Paswan, knew the victim well. As per the sources, both the groups are part of separate Dahi Handi mandals. However, this year the two groups got into a tussle over breaking one particular Dahi Handi from their area. 

A case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 302 (murder) and others, as well as the Arms Act, was registered against the accused, who has not been arrested so far, police said, adding that the injured were admitted to Shatabdi Hospital.
