Man injured in Gurgaon shooting dies

Twenty-six-year-old Joginder who was shot at inside the ICU of Gurgaon's Sunrise Hospital on Tuesday, succumbed to injuries on Wednesday. His father Satbir (50), who was also injured in the shootout, was shifted to RML Hospital in Delhi. His condition is said to be critical.

Gurgaon police arrested one Manoj, the complainant in an ongoing case of property dispute. The shootout was said to be a fallout of the dispute and the two parties had clashed earlier in the day at city court, where they had gone for the hearing of the case.

Joginder and Satbir were injured in the clash at the court complex and were brought to Sunrise Hospital by the family, police said.

Sources said the family members of the victims called police twice first, at the time of the clash at the court complex and second, when they noticed that men from the rival group were following them to the hospital.

But casting a shadow over allegations of chasing, a senior police officer said members from both the groups were admitted at the same hospital after the clash at the courthouse. Joginder's family said he was not admitted to the hospital, but was visiting other patients. Police, however, did not confirm this.

"The main accused, Manoj, has been arrested. After Joginder's death, the case has been converted to that of murder. Police teams are looking for other accused in the case," DCP (East) Maheshwar Dayal said.
