In the shadowy early hours of Thursday, violence erupted in the Welcome area of northeast Delhi. Four men were shot by an unidentified group of five to six men, two of them indiscriminately sleeping on a footpath.

Police received a PCR call at 3:02 AM reporting the bloodshed. ''Four men were left injured after unknown assailants opened fire near Shaitan Chowk,'' affirmed a senior officer.

Among the victims was 33-year-old Waseem, targeted with bullets in his stomach and hands; he's a known 'Bad Character' with 17 criminal cases. Asif, 30, took shots to his right hand and left chest. Shareef and Sultan, septuagenarians resting on a footpath, were also caught in the crossfire, sustaining injuries to their hands. Authorities are scrutinizing CCTV footage, deeming the motives still ambiguous but interrogating Waseem and Asif for leads.
