Dwarka Mor Violence
This is not the first time a full-blown gang war has erupted on the streets of the national capital. Earlier this month, two bike-borne assailants pulled up next to a 28-year-old man walking towards a mall after appearing at a hearing in a Saket court and pumped two bullets in his chest. The victim was later identified as one Prince, a history-sheeter with multiple cases against him.
A similar instance took place in Sector 11, Rohini, earlier this month where a man was chased by armed assailants and shot multiple times over a suspected gang-rivalry. The victim, Manish, was returning home from a party with his friends when they were ambushed by armed men. As per the latest reports, Manish was admitted to a local hospital where his condition was believed to be critical. Eyewitness accounts suggest that around 17 rounds were fired at Manish.
