Bengaluru has been placed on red alert on Friday after two people were injured in a shooting on the outskirts of the city on Friday.

NDTV reported that two men on a motorcycle fired upon the car of Dasanapura Agriculture Produce Marketing Committees (APMC) president Kadabagere Srinivas.  Srinivas and his driver Murthy sustained injuries and were rushed to a private hospital, where their condition is said to be critical, The Hindu reported. 

The city police have not been able to establish the identities of the gunmen who fired three to four rounds, The News Minute reported. It is suspected that Srinivas had dispute with few people over financial issues and this may be one of the reasons behind the incident, Bangalore Mirror reported.

An agricultural produce market committee is a marketing board established by state governments of India. All agricultural acts are marketed through them.
