Two masked men shot at a businessmen on Wednesday morning in Connaught Place, the main commercial hub in the national Capital, after trying to snatch his bag, police said.

Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Family of Tasveer Singh, a businessman who was shot at in Connaught Place on Wednesday, said they were baffled as to why the trader was targeted by two masked men in one of the most secured parts of Delhi. On Wednesday afternoon, hours after the incident had taken place, the medium-sized black backpack that Tasveer was carrying lay near a shop nearby.

Apart from the snatching-gone-wrong angle, the police are also looking at the possibility of a personal enmity that could have prompted the attack on Singh. According to Madhur Verma, deputy commissioner of police Singh’s two sons are in jail in connection with an attempt to murder case. The duo was to attend a court hearing on Wednesday.
