Nagpur: In a filmy style incident, two goons tried to kill a youth by firing two bullets on him over a mysterious reason. The youth had a narrow escape as the bullets missed him. The high-voltage drama was witnessed in Lakadganj area here on Friday night. The two assaulters fled the spot after the incident and the cops have mounted a hot pursuit to nab them.
According to reports, the two accused ruffians Dheeraj Shyam Malik (25) and Sumit alias Namo Bandu Meshram (30), both residents of Corporation Colony, near Gangabai Ghat, with a diabolic plan in their minds, arrived in the area on their motorcycle around 11.30 pm on Friday (January 27). The two accused caught hold of the youth Ashwin Rajesh Mohle (27), resident of the same area. With Ashwin’s hair in their grip, one of the accused Dheeraj whipped out a country-made pistol and put the weapon at his neck and dragged him to a house belonging one Vasu. The two accused kicked the door of Vasu’s house and when his wife came out, held out a threat.
The goons said, “Jaise isko laya hai, vaise Vasu ko bhi thokenge” (The way we have dragged Ashwin here the same way Vasu will be hit). As the two goons were talking to Vasu’s wife, Ashwin saw an opportunity to free himself from their deadly clutches and ran for his life. But as he started running, the two accused fired two bullets from their gun with the intention to kill him. However, the bullets missed Ashwin by a whisker. After enacting the spine-chilling drama, the two accused fled the spot. The scared Ashwin straightaway approached Lakadganj police and registered a case in this connection.
However, the reason behind the two accused enacting the filmy-style drama could not be ascertained immediately as cops have not divulged the details.
Lakadganj PSI S S Temgire has booked the two accused Dheeraj Shyam Malik and Sumit alias Namo Bandu Meshram under Sections 307, 325, 506(B), 34 of the IPC read with Sub-Section 3+25 of Arms Act and mounted a hunt to net them.
