The woman and her son have been admitted to a hospital for treatment. Police said the motive behind the shooting is still not clear.
Police said the incident occurred around 3.30pm when Sharma’s wife Ritu and son Dhruv had gone for shopping in the Arcadia market. They were accompanied by the judge’s guard, Mahipal. “Some locals informed the police about gunshots being fired outside the Arcadia market. When a police team reached the spot, they found Ritu and Dhruv lying in a pool of blood,” DCP-East Sulochna Gajraj said.
She said Ritu has suffered bullet injury in her chest, while Dhruv in his head. “They were taken to the Medanta Hospital where they are undergoing treatment but their condition is critical,” the officer said.
The accused reportedly reached the Sadar police station after the incident and opened fire at the officials present. An SHO tried to stop him but he managed to escape. However, he was later arrested from Faridabad road.
The Gurugram Police Commissioner said the accused was suffering from depression and further probe is on.
