A constable in Delhi Police has been taken into custody for attempt to murder charge after allegedly firing at his colleague with his service revolver at the Seemapuri police station in Shahdara, officials said on Saturday.

The cop, who fired has been identified as Ravinder Nagar, while the victim, who is now battling for life at the All India Istitute of Medical Science (AIIMS), has been identified as Amod Bhadana.

As stated by officials, the incident took place on Friday after an altercation between the two policemen over a work related issue.

Ravender Nagar was caught at the crime spot and is being interrogated on what triggered him to use his service revolver, stated DCP (Shahdara) Amit Sharma.

On Friday approximately around 10:30 PM, Bhadana was eating on the first floor of the police station when the argument started. Nagar then took out his service revolver and fired a shot at Bhadana, DCP Sharma said.

“The bullet hit Bhadana’s chest and he collapsed. He was rushed to the nearby Swami Dayanand Hospital from where he was referred to AIIMS Trauma Centre. He has undergone surgery. His condition is still critical,” the DCP said.

“What went wrong between them is being probed. The exact sequence of the events leading to the firing can be known only when the injured constable recovers and record his statement. Nagar is not saying anything on it,” he said.

Another police officer aware about the incident stated that the two constables first had an altercation at a tea stall near the police station, which was resolved by some other officials.

Meanwhile, some officials stated that Nagar was angry about a recent change in Bhadana’s charge. “Bhadana had been recently given the charge of a police beat falling under the territorial jurisdiction of the Seemapuri police station after Nagar was removed from that beat by senior officers. Nagar was unhappy about this,” said a police officer, requesting anonymity.
