"Another call was received from AAP MLA Amanatullah about the firing at 12.57 a.m.," the DCP said.

He said that no one was injured in the firing and both parties blamed each other for it. 

"Both parties were asked to give written complaint but no complaint was received from them. Action would be taken as per their complaints," he added.
