Moradabad: Firing was reported from liquor baron Ponty Chadha's residence on Friday morning. The incident took place at around 8:30 am at Chadha's Moradabad bungalow. Reports say firing was heard for almost 15 minutes followed by some screaming sounds.

The police now say that a relative of Chaddha accidentally set his pistol off. Seven family members were inside the house when the firing took place. Ponty Chadha's son Monty Chadha said that he and his father did not live there and his cousins lived in the house.
