Gorakhpur: An accused in an attempt to murder case was shot at by two motorcycle-borne masked gunmen in Boga village in Gorakhpur, police said on Wednesday.
Amarjeet, who was out on bail in the attempt to murder case, was on his way to a local market here when the two masked men fired at him, injuring him critically, the victim`s cousin Surendra, who was at the spot when the incident occurred, alleged in the police complaint.
A bullet has pierced into Amarjeet`s stomach, however, his condition is stated to be stable, police said.
