The Hush Post: Shot thrice in his abdomen, a surgeon from Delhi gave his attackers the taste of their own medicine and launched a “surgical strike” of sorts when he opened retaliatory firing from his licenced firearm.

The 65-year-old orthopaedic surgeon from south Delhi has expressed his suspicion that his brothers might be involved in this attack that took place on late Saturday evening. The surgeon fired over a dozen bullets from his pistol in his self-defence, Hindustan Times reported on Monday.

The incident was reported from the Fatehpur Beri locality in South Delhi where some unidentified armed persons shot two dozen rounds of bullets at the car of an orthopaedic surgeon on late Saturday evening. The victim surgeon has been identified as Dr Hans U Nagar.

But it proved to be a costly affair for the attackers who got the taste of own medicine when Dr Nagar opened retaliatory firing from his licenced pistol in self-defence. The surgeon fired about a dozen bullets.

The surgeon was later admitted to a private hospital in Gurugram and his condition is stated to be stable and out of danger, the report said.

Dr Nagar has reportedly told the police that he suspected the role of his brothers in this attack. “The three brothers were involved in a dispute over a property in Gurugram’s Berhampur village for the last decade. Multiple civil cases had been filed by the brothers against each other. We have called the two brothers for questioning,” HT quoted DCP Romil Baaniya as saying.
