Delhi jeweller shot at during robbery bid


New Delhi, June 15 :

A 49-year-old jeweller was shot at by two bike-borne assailants here Sunday when he resisted their attempt to snatch his bag containing jewellery and cash, police said.

The incident took place at around 3 p.m. in central Delhi’s Karol Bagh area. A bullet pierced the left side of Sanjay Garg’s chest, police said.
