NASHIK: Abdul Malik Mohammed Yunus Isa, president of Maharashtra’s Malegaon unit of AIMIM, was shot at thrice around 1.15am on Monday. His condition is reported to be stable.
Malik, 40, also the former mayor of Malegaon, was sitting outside a hotel with friends when two unidentified motorcycle-borne assailants shot at his right elbow, left thigh and the chest.He was rushed to a local hospital, and later shifted to a bigger facility in Nashik.
BG Shekhar, Nashik range IG (special), said, “Our investigation is on. The assailants are residents of Malegaon. They will be arrested soon.”
At present, it does not appear that the attempt on Malik’s life was due to political reasons, said a police source. “The victim had personal enmity with some people in Malegaon over financial issues. Once we arrest the assailants, we will get to know who is behind the incident,” the source added.
Investigating officer Dnyaneshwar Thorat said, “Rehan said in his complaint that the men on the bike went past the hotel twice, where Malik was sitting. The third time, they rode closer to Malik and shot at him thrice. They swiftly fled the spot.”
