A man was attacked by unknown assailants during early hours on Monday. He was, however, saved by the gun toting wife. The incident happened outside the residence of the man in Lucknow's Kakori district.
The victim has been idenitified as Abid Ali, a journalist by profession, while his wife is a lawyer.
The CCTV footage shows how Ali was attacked by masked assailants. Initially, there were two men who were thrashing Ali. But later three to four men joined them. Another man also came in with what appears to be a stick and thrashed him.
However, Ali was later rescued by his wife who came with a gun and fired a few rounds to threaten the attackers. On looking at the gun in her hand the assailants fled from the spot. The entire sequence of events was captured in the CCTV installed at their residence.
Meanwhile, the police have registered a case and began the investigation into the case.
