16-Year-Old Taekwondo Champion Shot at in Delhi, Loses Both Legs
While Rajan’s father died on the spot, Rajan sustained three bullet injuries, a police official said.
A 16-year-old taekwondo champion, who was shot at in northeast Delhi’s Bhajanpura area last week, is in critical after doctors had to amputate both his legs.
The incident took place on 21 June, when unidentified assailants who were in a car allegedly opened fire on a motorbike which Rajan and his father Kailash were riding. While Kailash died on the spot, Rajan sustained three bullet injuries, a police official said.
Rajan is a black belt in taekwondo and has participated in national-level competitions. The bullet injuries caused severe nerve damage, because of which one leg was amputated on Wednesday and the other, two days later.
Police are yet to track down the assailants and ascertain the motive behind the act. During the interrogation, an official informed, it also came to light that Rajan’s elder brother was murdered around a year ago.
