HYDERABAD: An official of a private bank was today shot at and injured allegedly by an unidentified person at his residence here, police said. The accused went to the flat of Manmadh Dalai, the private bank official, at Shanti Nagar this afternoon and had a word with him before firing, a police official said.
The banker sustained an injury in the leg and he was rushed to a hospital. The victim is out of danger, said the official. Hyderabad Police Commissioner Mahender Reddy said the accused would be soon nabbed.
"... He (accused) spoke in Telugu, English and broken Hindi. He ran away after he (victim) sustained an injury in the leg. The way he spoke to the watchman, with the wife of the (victim) on the intercom and the owner, we cannot come to a decision... It could be robbery," Reddy told reporters.
"We will definitely detect the case soon by taking into consideration whether he (accused) came in connection with bank transactions or whether he was completely an unknown person or he came through employees of the bank," he added.
