The police said that Sardar Khan, who bore a grudge against Surender for taunting him for the last six years on one pretext or the other, had been waiting to take revenge.

At about 3.30 pm Sardar Khan entered into an argument with Surender when he began teasing him. In a fit of rage, Sardar Khan shot off three bullets from his firearm. The police said that they were investigating to find out if there was any other reason for the security guard to open fire.

The police are also inquiring if the security guard has a valid licence for his firearm. As soon as Surender began writhing and blood started gushing out of the bullet wound, bank officials fixed a car and took him to a private hospital. Police sources said Surender is out of danger. The police have slapped a case of attempt to murder against Sardar Khan and investigation is on.
