A bullet hit a local youth, identified as Kalu, in the leg when the bikers opened fire.

Kalu was taking a relative's child to school at that time.

The two men on the motorbike, whom Kalu identified, had some issues with him for long, the police said.

"The bikers fired a couple of rounds before fleeing. One of the witnesses have noted down the number of the two-wheeler. We have launched a search for it," an officer of Kolkata Police's detective department said.

Kalu has been admitted to hospital.
