A 56-year-old doctor sustained serious injuries after he was shot four times by armed assailants outside his farmhouse in Gadaipur village in Fatehpur Beri area of south Delhi early on Sunday.
Police said the victim Hans Nagar suspected his two brothers were behind the murderous attack.
Hans Nagar had reached near the entrance to his farmhouse in Fatehpuri Beri from his clinic in south Delhi`s Siri Fort area around 1.50 a.m. when four unidentified attackers riding two motorcycles stopped nearby and fired more than a dozen rounds at him.
Nagar claimed he also fired from his licensed pistol and injured one-two attackers, Deputy Commissioner of Police Romil Baaniya said.
The victim’s family has suspected that the gunfight is the fallout of an ongoing property feud between Nagar and his brothers John and Ron.
Cops recovered around 22 empty cartridges and 2 live rounds of 9mm and .32 bore from the spot.
