At least three people were wounded in a clash between two groups inside the Dronacharya government college campus in Gurgaon on Thursday, when an ex-student of the college opened fire. The students clashed over some personal dispute.

Police reports stated that Vicky, a former student with a group of 6-7 of his friends armed with hockey sticks approached a student named Mohit in the college canteen, and pulled a country-made pistol on him. When Vicky opened fire in the air, Mohit raised an alarm and a group of students snatched Vicky's pistol.

Police added, Vicky hit Mohit with the butt of the pistol and injured him, following which the crowd caught hold of Vicky and beat him up.

Mohit and Narbir too were injured in the fight.

While providing details on the matter an eyewitness reportedly said, "He (Vicky) even fired a shot in the air, following which the crowd gathered at the scene. As he was trying to reload the weapon, Mohit attacked him."

The report added, Vicky and Mohit were admitted to the civil hospital in Gurgaon where doctors referred Vicky to Safdarjung hospital in Delhi as his condition became critical.

The report suggested that all of the other mates of Vicky managed to flee.

A police official said, "We have not made any arrests yet but have registered an FIR against Vicky and Mohit under relevant IPC sections and investigation is underway. We are looking for the other accused too."

While school shootings are common in the US, they are comparatively rare in India, due to stricter gun laws.
