Police on Sunday claimed to have arrested a man who had opened fire in Trikua Nagar.

Police said, “Some unidentified persons had fired a few shots at around 11 PM in South Extension in Trikuta Nagar causing panic in the whole locality.”

Following the incident, police said, they started an investigation and apprehended a person from the spot. He tried to dodge the police team by concocting a story blaming some individuals.

Police, however, said he confessed that he had fired the shots from his licensed pistol to kill/ threaten Chaman Kaith alias Rohan, son of Mohan Lal Kaith, resident of South Extension in Trikuta Nagar as some dispute was going on between him and the family of Chaman Kaith.

He was immediately arrested and on his disclosure, a weapon of offense (.32 bore pistol) along with 3 live rounds was recovered from the spot.

“In this incident, Chaman Kaith escaped unhurt,” police added. The police claimed to have solved the whole case of firing within one hour.
