Bhopal: The husband of a senior woman IAS officer Ajita Vajpayee Pandey was shot at allegedly by a car decorator here following dispute over ownership of a shop but escaped unhurt, police said on Sunday.

The car decorator fired two shots at Amit Pandey, husband of IAS officer Ajita, from his licensed weapon following a dispute over ownership of a shop in the Maharana Pratap Nagar area of the city, police said.

The incident occurred yesterday when Pandey along with his associates went to Dynamic Chamber where the car-decorator Sanjay Soni's shop was located, they said, adding that Soni allegedly fired two shots at Pandey but he escaped unhurt though a bullet hit his SUV.

Police later arrested Soni and seized his licenced revolver. But traders of the area protested against the arrest and demanded that a case should also be registered against Pandey who they said had allegedly threatened Soni.
