Two unidentified gunmen shot a policeman near the office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police in Palam Vihar on Sunday evening, police said.

The policeman, Inspector Sonu Malik, was attacked as he was exiting a property dealer;s office opposite the ACP’s office in Udyog Vihar, police said. The assailants came on foot and fled immediately after shooting him.

He was initially  taken to Columbia Asia hospital, which sent him to Medanta citing the non-availability of a surgeon.

Police sources said Malik’s uncle, who was also a policeman, was shot dead some time ago, and said personal enmity could be behind the recent attack.  

Malik was recently transferred out of Special Task Force, a senior police officer who did not want to be named said.

 “We are investigating all angles and are waiting for a statement from the inspector,” he added.
