Irked over termination from job, a sacked employee opened fire and injured a Gurgaon-based Japanese company’s human resource wing head, police said.
The incident took place around 9 AM when the victim, Binesh Sharma, HR head of Mitsubishi, was going to his office in IMT, Manesar, in a car.
“Two persons on a bike tried to intercept Binesh Sharma’s car on gun point. When he did not stop but accelerated instead, the pillion rider opened fire aiming to kill Sharma,” Gurugram Police public relations officer Ravinder Kumar told PTI.
Sharma, attacked by the sacked employee accompanied by an accomplice on a bike, suffered two gunshot injuries.
“The attackers, one of whom was later identified as Joginder, managed to escape from the spot. Some passersby called the police and Sharma was admitted to Rockland Hospital where he is said to be out of danger,” Kumar said.
On Wednesday, Sharma had sacked an employee, Joginder, over his alleged “unprofessional behaviour”, officials said.
Joginder later threatened Sharma of dire consequences but the HR head did not take his warning seriously, the officer added.
