Mumbai: A 32-year-old real estate broker,
suspected to be closely associated with the members of
gangster Chhota Shakeel gang, was on Saturday shot at by two
unidentified motorcycle-borne persons in south Mumbai`s Teli
galli area, police said.
The incident took place meters away from Pakmodia street
where the bodyguard-cum-driver of fugitive don Dawood
Ibrahim`s brother was killed, they said.
According to police, the victim, identified as Sohail
Abdul Mazid Khan, was talking to his friends on Shaikh Burhan
Karmudding Street this afternoon, when one of the two
unidentified persons, who came on a red colour Honda bike,
fired at him.
The bike rider was wearing a cap, while the shooter
covered his face with a handkerchief, they added.
"Two bullets were fired at Khan. One bullet hit at Khan`s
left leg ankle. He was taken to nearby J J hospital for
treatment," Deputy Police Commissioner Cherring Dorje told
"Khan, who is a real estate broker, is out of danger.
An attempt to murder case has been registered in J J Marg
police station," he added.
According to Crime Branch sources, Khan had a cheating
and forgery case registered against him in 2004 and used to
carry tiffin boxes to Shakeel`s gang members, lodged in city
Arthur Road jail in 2004 and 2005.
