Shocked by the sight of the attackers wielding guns, passers-by, bikers and e-rickshaw operators are seen fleeing to safety. Traffic comes to a standstill as cars stop far behind the white car being fired at. Some cars are also seen making an about turn and leaving the area.
The footage also shows the three shooters who keep firing at the car until the vehicle lunges forward and moves out of the camera frame. The shooters chase it, gun in hand. Possibly due to an obstruction ahead, the car then reverses back to its earlier spot, takes a quick turn and speeds away. The shooters are seen trying to chase it down as others on the road look on in shock.
According to police, the shooters fled the spot after the incident. Local residents informed Mr Chaudhary’s family members and the brothers were rushed to the hospital.
Senior police officer Ghanshyam Bansal said they are scanning CCTV footage to identify the shooters and track them down. Several teams, he said, are working on this.
After a while police could be seen at the crime scene as investigations commenced.
