This original incident happened on Sunday morning around nine o’clock. A Muslim youth Bilal was riding his bike recklessly at a high speed and hit an 8-year-old girl. When Nathuram and few others confronted him, he abused them and left. The matter seemed to have been resolved, but the next day a Muslim mob assembled and started pelting stones and opened fire on the Hindu family.
As per the police sources, several people including the relatives of Nathuram have been badly hurt. A woman with bullet injury in her hand was referred from Sohna Civil Hospital to Gurugram district hospital. Others are undergoing treatment at the civil hospital in Sohna.
