A 70-year old theatre owner allegedly shot at and injured two people in full public view during a quarrel over a land dispute at Palani town in Tamil Nadu, a senior police official said.

The man who used a country-made gun was arrested, soon after the incident that took place.

The man entered into an argument with the duo when they came to undertake fencing work on a piece of land apparently owned by another person, claiming the property to be his.

During the course of the argument, he suddenly took out the gun and fired at them, injuring both, the official said.

One of the injured was taken to Government Rajaji Hospital in Madurai, about 120 km from Palani, while the other, was treated locally. (PTI)
