Kunal, a resident of Khushkibagh Bageshwar Colony, was identified as the victim.
The incident occurred as the boy was riding his bike home. The two accused approached from behind came to a halt, and shot him in the thigh. The victim collapsed on the ground.
Locals raced to the scene after hearing the gunshots and brought Kunal to the Government Medical College Hospital for treatment. Police arrived at the hospital after getting the information. Kunal told the police in his report that one of the accused was his girlfriend’s father, Munna Paswan, and that he couldn’t identify the other person on the bike.
Kunal also claimed that Paswan had filed a kidnapping charge against him in January 2021, for which he was sentenced to prison. He was released on bail only 20 days ago. Since then, he has been frequently threatened by the girl’s father, Indian Today reported.
A case has been filed, and an investigation has begun. Police suspect that it is a matter of love affair and the girl’s father did not want the boy to contact his daughter.
