When a PCR van arrived at an apartment complex in Kalkaji on September 13 night to take 20-year-old NRI Anmol Sarna to hospital, he was sitting quietly on a pathway with his head between his arms. A gunman reached out to him. Anmol held his arm and walked to the van, the gunman is learnt to have told his superiors.
