Making a mockery of police and its presence at public places in the city during night, two armed youths opened fire at a private travel agency office situated near Sindhi Camp late on Tuesday night after they were not given free tickets to travel to Udaipur.

According to the police, three youngsters reached Mahalaxmi Travels, a private bus service providing buses to almost every part of the state at 10.30 pm on Tuesday. Both asked the concerned clerk to provide them three free tickets for the air-conditioned bus to Udaipur. “The clerk politely denied them and said he can only arrange for a normal bus for their free travel.

This led to a heated argument between the clerk and these unidentified persons. Later, they threatened the clerk to face the dire consequences and said that they will return. The owners of the travel agency informed the nearby Jalupura police for help,” said Pushpendra Singh, circle inspector, Kotwali..

After 20 minutes, out of the three, two persons came with pistols and opened fire. “Two bullets from the pistols hit one glass window of the office. However, nobody was hurt,” Singh said.

Police initiated barricading in the city after the incident. “We have got some clues on the identity of the accused through CCTV footage and teams are trying to nab them,” a senior police officer said.
