NEW DELHI: A northeastern man was fired at and injured by two motorbike-riding masked assailants here Friday morning, police said.

The attack took place around 7 am near Sarai Kale Khan area in south Delhi when Ricky, 21, was heading towards Select Citywalk, a shopping mall in south Delhi, on his motorbike.

"Two bullets were fired at Ricky. The first one did not hit him but the second one pierced his right thigh," said a police official.

He was rushed to the Max Hospital in the Saket area of south Delhi where doctors described his condition to be stable.

A friend of the victim said Ricky may be discharged from the hospital by Friday evening.

"A case of personal enmity cannot be ruled out. We are investigating all possible angles," the official said.

Police said no onlooker could note down the number of the motorbike used by the assailants as it was covered.
