However, a person may be penalized under section IPC - 307 to a rigorous imprisonment for seven years for just taking a shot from a gun on somebody (not necessarily killing the person), if his motive was to kill him, i.e. an attempt to murder”. A Presentation by Vivek Mehrotra

Alternatively, if brakes are applied, there will be an abrupt reduction in the speed of the vehicle and it may come to a standstill….
