In a shocking incident, three unidentified men open fire in the air at Gazebo Market in Bandra's Linking Road area on Thursday night. The bikers also threatened people to not install stalls outside or else they will kill them. The Khar police rushed to the spot and started investigating the matter.

According to the police sources, the incident occurred at 7.45 pm at Gazebo Market. Police sources said they are suspecting that a few land mafia were behind this firing who wanted to grab the land and wanted to run illegal hawkers at this spot.
