Karnataka: Man threatens tenant with gun; video goes viral | Hubballi News – Times of India


BELAGAVI: A desperate landlord took the extreme step of threatening his tenant with a gun over unpaid rent at Chikkodi in Belagavi district on Sunday night.
A video of the incident has gone viral. The Chikkodi police have registered two FIRs following a complaint by both the tenant and owner.
On Sunday night Noor Ahmad Shapurkar entered the compound of his tenant Rohini Deekshit flashing his country-made single-barrel gun in an attempt to threaten her and recover the Rs 2,500 that was due towards rent for the house in which she lived.
Rohini had allegedly defaulted on her rent during the lockdown. Shapurkar reportedly asked her to vacate the house when she failed to pay the rent for three months. He also kept the deposit towards the unpaid rent. However, Rohini still owed her house owner Rs 2,500 which Shapurkar had been demanding from her.
As soon as Shapurkar entered the compound, there was a heated altercation between him and Rohini’s family members. She reportedly told him that they would vacate the house after a month. The argument got physical with Rohini’s family pushing Shapurkar. The video shows Shapurkar whipping out his gun and firing multiple shots in the air. Some of the bullets ripped through a portion of the roof, said a police officer.
Police are investigating whether Shapurkar had a licence for the weapon. While Shapurkar has been hospitalised as he sustained injuries in his hand his son has been arrested in connection with the case, said police.
