By Rajkamal

In what looks like a scene from one of Clint Eastwood's movies, an ex-serviceman walked up to a motorcycle dealer in Kengeri, on the outskirts of Bangalore, Karnataka, pulled out a gun and opened fire.

The ex-serviceman, a customer, decided to open fire after a heated argument with a salesperson after the showroom delayed to deliver a motorcycle he had booked.

The ex-serviceman was soon pinned down and subdued by an unarmed police head constable, who even managed to snatch away the gun. The incident left customers and other staff in a state of panic.

Once police intervened and started the investigation, things took a shocking turn — that particular two-wheeler showroom had sold 48 BS3 vehicles that are banned since April 1. The Supreme Court had banned sales of BS3 two-wheelers.

The dealership, named Satellite Motors, a Honda outlet, sold 48 BS3 two-wheelers to unsuspecting customers with a temporary registration, thus forcing customers to frequent the dealership seeking permanent registration certificates.
