Man shot at for coughing while playing Ludo in Greater Noida https://t.co/BWVSHpCrJH— TOI Noida (@TOINoida) April 16, 2020
Allegedly, both of them had a heated argument with regards to coughing 'deliberately' and things just escalated from there.
The 25-year-old youth, identified as Prashant Kumar, was playing ludo with three other friends when Jai Veer Singh, the accused joined them.
Gullu (Jai Veer Singh's nickname) got angry thinking Prashant was doing it (coughing) deliberately and asked if he wanted to infect him (with coronavirus). As the argument intensified, Gullu pulled out a pistol and shot at Prashant.
Prashant Kumar was taken to a private hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.
However, Jai Veer Singh, the man who pulled the trigger, is yet to be taken into police custody. So far, an FIR has been registered against the accused.
