Pujari, who had ordered an omelette for four of his friends became furious, when he found out that the omelette he ordered for didnt have onions.
He asked Kashyap as to why he had not added onions to their omelettes, to which he repiled saying that he could not afford onions as they had become expensive in the last week.
In a fit of rage, Pujari then fished out his pistol and shot the vendor, the police said. Kashyap was then immediately rushed to the hospital.
The police maintained that the assailants were local criminals and had many cases registered against them. A case under attempt to murder and extortion has been slapped on them, they added.
