Delhi, January 18: Filling a false case proved costly for a man in Delhi's Sangam Vihar. The man identified as Ikrar hatched a plan, and hired gunmen from Rajasthan to shoot him in order to implicate his brother-in-law's kin over family dispute. He later went to the police station and lodged a complaint. However, after investigation it emerged that Ikrar had colluded with his friend Rajesh, a history sheeter to fabricate attempted murder case against the in-laws. Three people involved in the conspiracy have been apprehended, police said.

As per a report published in Times of India, Ikrar concocted a story in order to take revenge against the in-laws over family feud. Claiming to be the "victim", Ikrar told police that on the night of January 10, he was shot by two individuals named Jabbar and Haru in Mehrauli, leading to injuries. Jabbar was his sister's father-in-law and Haru one of his relatives.
