Two brothers shot, injured at currency exchange shop

New Delhi, Oct 23: Two brothers were injured after some men fired shots at them at their currency exchange shop in southwest Delhi's Mahipalpur on Monday, police said. The brothers, Akmal and Faizi, were at the shop when a couple of men met them and opened fire after some time, they said. 

The accused sat with the brothers for around 25 minutes and told them they wanted to get the dollars exchanges for Indian currency, police said, adding that the visitors opened fire, injuring the brothers.

Akmal was shot in the shoulder while Faizi suffered hand injuries, said Devender Arya, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southwest).  The matter is being investigated and it is being probed whether the attack was planned to kill the brothers or just to scare them off, police said.
