In a suspected case of road rage, a 30-year-old man was allegedly shot dead inside a moving car by some unidentified bike-borne men in east Delhi's Preet Vihar, police said on Friday.
His cousin, who was sitting next to him in the car, also sustained a bullet injury, they said.
According to police, the incident took place at 12 am on Thursday when Somesh Chhabra, a resident of Mansarovar Park, along with his cousin Shivam Dua and friend Rahul had gone to Connaught Place.
While the three were returning home, they got into a heated argument with some unidentified bike-borne men near Preet Vihar metro station over giving way, a police officer said.
During the argument, one of the accused took out a pistol and opened fire. The bullet first hit Chhabra on his chest and pierced his cousin's jaw, the officer said.
Chhabra lost control over the vehicle and it hit a divider. The victims were rushed to a hospital, where Chhabra succumbed to injury, the officer said.
A case was registered under relevant sections of the IPC, he said, adding that police are scanning the CCTV footage of the area to identify the accused persons.
