Sweet shop worker shot at after fight over jalebis
New Delhi, Feb 19: A row over jalebis resulted in a gunshot in a sweet shop in Delhi on Tuesday.

A security guard shot a 35-year-old worker of a popular sweet shop in Delhi, in the neck after the duo had a fight when the latter asked the former to stand in a queue for buying jalebis.

The victim, Satender Singh, a worker from Uttar Pradesh, is battling for life at a hospital. He was an employee at the Bangla Sweet House for the last eight years, a Mails Today report said.

The accused, Neeraj Kumar, 28, arrived at swet shop around 7 pm to buy jalebis. He allegedly had a fight with Singh, who asked him to stand in a queue.

"Singh asked Kumar to stand in a queue for buying sweets, but he refused to listen to him and instead had an argument with him. The argument heated up within a few minutes and Kumar fished out his licensed pistol from his pocket to shoot Singh," a senior police officer said.

Neeraj tried to escape from the spot but the local people caught him and handed over to the police.

Police officers investigating the incident struggled to get statements from the employees who refused to disclose the details of the incident.

"We did not see Satender getting shot. We all saw the accused running across the road, who was also caught by police officers. A PCR van was at the spot within minutes, and they had cordoned off the area," Naresh Singh, an employee of the Bangla Sweet House, said.

A case of attempt to murder under the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Arms Act has been lodged at the Mandir Marg police station.
