New Delhi: A 21-year-old man was shot dead in the national capital on Thursday night, police said on Friday. The alleged killer also received a bullet injury and is in hospital.

Police said Manish Singh Chaudhary, a Delhi University student, was shot by Sanjay Jat, 28, in South Patel Nagar, over a petty argument. The accused and his friends also beat up Manish's father.

Later, Sanjay was admitted in a hospital with a bullet injury on his right shoulder. "He'll be arrested after he is released from the hospital.
