"Ricky's mother, Khula Laimayum Sahani, 50, claimed in her complaint to the police the attackers might be associates of two people who had snatched her gold chain June 28 evening when she was headed home on her scooter."
New Delhi, July 11 - 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 a.m. 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 told IANS 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.

Ricky, boxing champion, works as a physical instructor in a gym in the mall. He lives in the Patparganj area of east Delhi.

His mother belongs to Manipur while his father hails from Punjab.

Ricky's mother, Khula Laimayum Sahani, 50, claimed in her complaint to the police the attackers might be associates of two people who had snatched her gold chain June 28 evening when she was headed home on her scooter.

She said the snatchers threatened her after she caught hold and handed them over to the police.
