The gun misfired when Vikram Lamba was showing the licensed gun to Rahul Bhatt, son of famous producer-director, Mahesh Bhatt.
The police revealed that the bullet from the gun hit the window of The Central Institute of Fisheries Education which was opposite to where Lamba's office was. A student got injured after the glass pieces from the window fell on his face. A case of ''causing hurt by an act endangering the life or personal safety of others'' has been registered against Lamba.
The police received a call from a student from the institution who said that someone had pelted a stone on the building. In further investigation, it was found that a bullet was fired from the opposite building, following which further inquiries were made.
The police have also recorded Lamba's statement and Rahul's statement will be recorded on the same. On questioning Lamba, he told the police that he was cleaning the weapon when it misfired adding that his friend Rahul Bhatt was also present at that time.
"Lamba left the office after the incident and did not inform the police, assuming no one would be aware about it," said police after they decided to check with him.
Vishwas Nagre-Patil, Additional commissioner of police (west), said that the case will only be decided after verifying facts.
Meanwhile, Satish Maneshinde, legal counsel of Rahul Bhatt said that it was a case of accidental firing and he (Rahul) was not involved in it. Reports also revealed that Rahul Bhatt had already applied for a gun license with the Mumbai police.
Vikram Lamba was earlier detained at the Mumbai airport for carrying currency beyond permissible limits and also failing to declare dutiable goods.
