Speaking to a news channel ACP (Crime) Rajesh Kumar said that a notorious criminal, Rakesh, was leaving his Gurgaon residence in an SUV when a Santro approached the SUV and opened fire.

Rakesh was going to Mehrauli from IIFCO chowk when the assailants fired at his car indiscriminately, police said. While Rakesh escaped unhurt, his driver was hit by a bullet following which he lost control over the car causing it to topple over an autorickshaw standing nearby. The driver of the auto was crushed to death on the spot, police said.

Rakesh, a history-sheeter, was recently released on bail, PTI quoted the police as saying.

The incident, which happened at 9 in the morning, startled regular office-goers and affected traffic for a while. However, Kumar said that situation was under control now and the culprits would be nabbed soon.

Soon after the shootout, the Santro in which the shooters were travelling fled the scene but the senior police official told NDTV that three teams have been formed to nab the perpetrators.

Here are some reactions to the incident:
