NEW DELHI: Throwing a challenge to Delhi Police, some miscreants opened several rounds of fire in Delhi's Yamuna Vihar locality late on Monday, triggering panic among the local residents.

The two sides were soon engaged in a heated argument after which the men left the area, threatening Nagar's sons of dire consequences.
The group soon returned along with 40 to 50 people carrying sticks, iron rods and pistols. Waving their weapons in the air, they miscreants fired several shots targeting Nagar's residence.
