me a CSI.. wow!!!

i had a very interesting day today. Most exciting day ever!!!

As usual i was sitting at home studying. All of a sudden i heard all lot of hullabaloo outside. its not unusual, coz there is a huge unauthorised colony just opposite my appartment and all the hooligans of east delhi live there. Then i heard the most amazing sound. Something i've been dying to hear for a very long time- A Gun Shot!!!!! Yes!! a i heard a gunshot in real life. Not in the movies or in an Army Day parade.. and that too near my house!! I have been dreaming of seeing a shootout for ever. Every time i see CSI or anyother movie.. how i wish to be there, at the scene..

Instantly abandoning my books I rushed out with my bro and dino (my doggie). He had been barking crazily by then. When i went outside to the landing of the stairs, there was a huge crowd and a policeman chasing two guys. Apparently they had stolen a bike from a neighboring appartment!! They barged into our building and and tried to jump over the fence to the next building

The policeman, poor dude, had no lathi or a gun with him. Still, he chased the duo to the very end our compound wall. One of the guys jumped over the fence and ran into the neighboring appartment. The other stayed back, God knows why, when he saw the policeman close on him. He took out his revolver, ( yup, i saw it!!! a real gun in a real shoot out!!!) and shot at the police guy. From the look of it, he was definetly a novice at shooting. Coz the gun tilted as soon as shot and went flying from his hand.

The unarmed police guy didn't dare chase him. Its totally understandable. Poor dude!! He was brave enough to have chased him this far. The other guy too jumped and within seconds he was gone too.

Now all that is left behind is a Gun, a bullet shell, lots of glass pieces and a bullet hole IN MY CAR!!!!

Yes there is a bullet hole IN MY CAR and the bullet was/ is lodged inside the backseat!!!!

>>>> such an adrenalin rush<<<<

  12. from a legal point of view, the bullet lodged in ya car seat belongs to you... you heard a real gun shot, saw a real revolver and got a bullet to prove all that... so chill :p

  13. @ Ron
    the bullet doesn't belong to me!!! its fr d forensics ppl. its evidence.

  14. Ssnab....SSnab....SSNab....SSNAb.... SSNAB !!!! What is that??? Now now you din tell me you lived in a high sci fi area... And try and preserve the bullet na.... :D

  15. @ Zahid
    dude!! wht is a high sci fi area??? i live in a very calm and peaceful area. excpt the area opp to mine.. everything else is jus fine :P

  16. i had been told by a friend in delhi in vidhyavihar that he seen guys with guns in delhi. But said he never heard of shoot out. i saw the pictures first thought of accident that was a surprise to hear about the gun shot. hey did you get that bullet ?? by the way how did police handled the case - our great indian police did they make the life miserable ? tell me after shooting the car glass did the bullet stuck in seat ? or did it make hole beyond the seat. you should hang the bullet with a thread in your rever mirror - classic it will. live bullet.

  17. @ known stranger
    guns or shootouts r very rare in delhi. n sadly i dnt get to keep the bullet. its evidence.. so its in court.
    n the police dnt make our life miserable.. infact they dnt do anything which is more annoying..
    the bullet almost came out from the other side of the seat.. but it was stck thr only.. thnk god..
    else d police wud hv ripped out 2 seats!!!

  18. High sci fi is kin of science fiction area which means things really do happen !!!

  19. Glad no one was injured.Kudos to your spirit gal to actually have enjoyed all this :)

    P.S. Must say I admire the shattered glass design! ;)

  20. OMG...whoaa!!! whoaa!! :O :O

    Happening life eh? ;)
