Two unidentified masked men shot at a scrap dealer businessman late on Friday night in Mumbai's Marol area. After firing two shots the men ran away.
The shooters were waiting for him outside his residential building. When the scrap dealer, Aslam Wali Khan, reached his building and alighted from his Mercedes car the shooters fired two rounds. One bullet hit him in the stomach but the other bullet got misfired.
The shooters after that ran away towards the bike of their companion, who was waiting at a distance and left the crime scene.
After hearing gunshots, people nearby took Aslam to Mumbai's Holy Spirit Hospital. He was admitted and the bullet was taken out. Currently, he is said to be in a stable condition.
