Gurgaon: In another attack at a toll plaza in Haryana, an employee was shot at and Rs 1 lakh was looted from him, police said on Friday.

According to reports, more than 20 men attacked the toll plaza on the Gurgaon-Alwar highway at Badshahpur on Thursday and looted over Rs 1 lakh.

Ateet Kumar, 23, who was shot on Thursday, was stated to be out of danger in a hospital.

In the CCTV footage of the incident, the assailants opened fire and injured three toll plaza employees besides vandalising vehicles.

Police officer Rajpal said the shooting appeared to be a case of rivalry between Ramgarh and Rithoj villages.

"A few months ago, all the employees from Ramgarh were replaced by people from Rithoj village," he said. Kumar belonged to Rithoj.

"We have booked more than a dozen people from Ramgarh for attempt to murder," Rajpal said.
