An Income Tax inspector sustained a bullet injury and a Delhi Police constable was injured in a scuffle with two young men in Sarojini Nagar here on Monday.

Thirty-four-year-old constable Chander Vijay, who is posted in Sarojini Nagar, was on patrol around 10 p.m. when he spotted two young men sitting in a Santro car parked by the road in Netaji Subhash Nagar market and asked them to go away. As soon as the constable left, the two young men followed him in the car and hit his motorcycle from behind on Brig. Hoshiar Singh Marg. The constable fell on the road and the two young men came out of their car and allegedly attacked him with hammers.

Local resident Rajesh Kumar, who happened to pass by, came to the rescue of the constable and tried to sort out the matter.

At this the duo entered into an altercation with Rajesh as well. Rajesh and Chander Vijay managed to catch hold of the two, but one of them opened fire from his pistol in a bid to escape when he saw some more people coming towards them.

The bullet hit Rajesh on the jaw and he along with the constable were taken to All-India Institute of Medical Sciences Trauma Centre. “The two are out of danger,” said a senior police officer.

The two young men managed to escape in the melee.
