Patna: Motorcycle-borne criminals in Patna on Thursday opened indiscriminate fire in Karbigahia under Jakkanpur police station seriously injuring one person in the process.

As reported, the incident occurred around 3:30 pm near Karbigahia police check-post where one Nishant Kumar was sitting outside his home. About 3-4 persons on two motorcycles arrived at his home and fired several rounds hitting Nishant in his stomach three times.

The criminals then escaped before the police could arrive.

The victim was rushed to a nearby private hospital where he was listed in critical condition.

Police said it appeared the attack was the result of a personal feud between two rival gangs.

Victim's sister told the police that her brother had earlier received a threatening call from one Bittu, a well-known criminal in the area, who had said that he will kill Nishant even when he is at his home.

Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) Sushant Kumar Saroj said police were investigating the case and were certain to nab Bittu soon.
