Former minister M Mukesh Goud's son M Vikram Goud was shot at by unidentified persons in Gayatri Hills under the Banjara Hills police limits in the wee hours of Friday.

Vikram Goud, who was fired upon thrice, survived the attack.

Mukesh Goud was a minister in the YSR government. His son, too, is active in politics, and used to participate in Youth Congress activities. He unsuccessfully contested the 2016 GHMC elections. The Congress had also announced him as its candidate for Mayor before the GHMC elections.

Hyderabad Police Commissioner Mahendar Reddy said that the assailants opened three rounds at Vikram at around 3:30 am, and three cartridges pierced through his right shoulder and spinal cord. The victim's wife Shifali heard the gunshot sounds in the ground floor and rushed to the spot, and found her husband in a pool of blood. He was rushed to Apollo Hospital at Jubilee Hills, where surgeons removed the three bullets from his body. His condition was stated to be out of danger.

Vikram had returned home late the previous night, after 12:30 am, after participating in a social function. He woke up at 3 am to perform puja when he was attacked.

The CP said that he had constituted ten teams to solve the case and identify the culprits. He said that they were verifying CCTV footage to identify the attackers. Neither the security at Vikram's residence nor anyone in the vicinity saw any persons moving around or running from the house, police said. They added that several criminal cases were pending against both Mukesh and Vikram Goud. A CLUES team visited the spot in Gayatri Hills near Hafeez Baba Nagar in Banjara Hills.

West Zone DCP A Venkateshwar Rao visited Apollo Hospital and enquired about the incident with the family members of Vikram Goud.

Film director Puri Jagannath, a main suspect in the ongoing drugs case, also came to check on Vikram Goud at the hospital, and enquired about his health. Vikram Goud has been a film producer, and produced Ishq and Gundejaari Gallanthainde under the Sresht Movies banner along with hero Nithin Reddy's sister Nikhitha Reddy.

Alampur Congress MLA S A Sampath Kumar also visited Apollo Hospital and consoled Vikram Goud. Speaking to the media, Sampath said that he was receiving threatening calls for the last few days.
