New Delhi: An assistant sub-inspector on Wednesday allegedly shot at a head constable critically injuring him following an argument over disposal of garbage, police said.

ASI Ramnath Upadhyay (59) fired on head constable Satender Khokar in Welcome area in north-east Delhi at around 8:30 AM, they said.

The duo, who were neighbours, had got into an argument over the disposal of garbage.

"When Khokar came out of his house to go to work, Upadhyay started abusing him. A heated argument followed. The ASI then snatched the service revolver of the victim and fired at him," a senior police official said.

Khokar was injured on his chest and stomach, the official said, adding that the 27-year-old head constable was rushed to a hospital.

Doctors said he is in a critical condition.

A case has been registered against Upadhyay, who is currently absconding.
