A man was shot and wounded by security personnel when he tried to slip into the high-security Indian Air Force (IAF) base at Hindon here in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Wednesday. Kumar has been admitted to hospital.
Sujit - the man in question - is a resident of Uttar Pradesh's Pratapgarh. The Intelligence Bureau alert speaks about a specific threat to the Hindon air base which is situated in Ghaziabad.
As he ignored the warnings by security personnel to stop, he was shot in the left leg in order to immobilise him, SHO of Sahibabad police station Rakesh Kumar Singh said.
Further details are awaited.
He has been staying in the Anand Vihar locality for past three years. He was preparing "to take a ride" on one of the planes at the air base, he said.
