A roadside egg vendor was shot at by a customer in the Etah district of Uttar Pradesh, India, for not using onion while making omelettes. The incident took place on Saturday evening near Aliganj market when the egg vendor Deepu Kashyap was busy catering to his customers.
At around 7.30pm, Yogesh alias Khurana reached his stall along with his relative identified as Pujari and four more friends. The group ordered omelettes and Kashyap served them to the group. Khurana after having a bite realized that Kashyap had not used onion while preparing the omelette. He picked a fight with him and the group began to assault Kashyap.
Local shopkeepers gathered at the spot and tried to intervene. Khurana then whipped out a countrymade pistol and fired at Kashyap with an intention to kill him. The bullet grazed past his forehead and Kashyap was taken to a local government hospital for treatment. Sanjay Kumar Yadav, additional superintendent of Etah police said that Kashyap was out of danger.
The 'correct' way of preparing and cooking an omlette in India. There's no extra charge for the insects.
A case was lodged against Khurana, Pujari and four more unidentified persons under IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 386 (extortion) among other charges. The group escaped from the area and efforts to catch them are underway.
