New Delhi, Sep 13 (PTI) A 22-year-old man has been arrested for his alleged involvement in the attack on a kabaddi player following a dispute over scores in a match in southeast Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar, the police said today.
Amit, a member of the Gaurav Jharera gang, was arrested from DDA Park, Madangir, yesterday on the basis of a tip-off, they said.
The pistol, which was used to shoot the player, and two live cartridges were seized from the accused.
Amit and his friend, a juvenile, were on Sunday watching a kabaddi match between Dakshinpuri’s Block C and Block 20 when a dispute arose between the two teams over the scores.
The duo joined the melee. When 18-year-old Avinash, a member of the 20 block team, raised his voice, the accused started threatening him.
Amit’s friend opened fire on Avinash. The bullet grazed his skull. The accused ran away after firing three shots in the air to scare those present there, the police said.
