Five people have been arrested in connection with a case in which a journalist was shot at by unknown persons in Ghazaiabad near Delhi on Monday night at around 10:30 pm.

The journalist, identified as Vikram Joshi, was attacked while he was returning from his sister's place on a motorcycle with his two daughters when a group of men opened fire at him. Joshi received a bullet injury on his head and is in a critical condition at city's Yashoda Hospital, news reported.

Visuals of the attack were captured in CCTV footage of a road in Ghaziabad's Vijay Nagar area, where the attack took place. All five arrested are known to Joshi's family, the police said.

In the footage, Joshi's bike can be seen swerving when suddenly in no time, a group of men surround the vehicle and start pulling and hitting him. The two children started to run away the moment the bike fell.

Joshi was then dragged towards a vehicle and the blamed began to hit him before fleeing the spot, following which Joshi's girl hurried towards him, shouting for help. She sat out and about close to her dad and attempted to stop passers by requesting help. Barely any individuals at that point approached to support the harmed man. 

The occurrence happened days after Joshi recorded a protest with Vijay Nagar Police Station expressing that a few men were pestering his niece.
