Shooter Brandishes Pistol, Hits Man On Lucknow Road. Congress Slams Yogi Govt Over Video

An incident of road rage escalated when a man threatened another following a car collision in the Web Mall area of UP’s Lucknow. Vinod Mishra, an international pistol shooter, grabbed the other driver, Ranjeet’s t-shirt, pointed a pistol at him, and struck his abdomen with the gun’s barrel. He then pushed Ranjeet against a car and hit his shoulder with the gun’s butt as Ranjeet tried to protect himself.

“Ranjeet was going toward Bhutnath in his white WagonR when his car hit Mishra’s black Tata Safari, this led to an argument between them and the accused took out his gun,” Additional Superintendent of Police, Amit Kumawat said, as reported by NDTV.

Mishra hit the man at least three times with the gun in an assault. Despite the victim’s apology, the accused persisted in threatening him.
