According to sources, the man tried to jump over the wall of the airbase on late Tuesday night. He did not stop despite several warnings from the security personnel.

The man was shot in the leg, and was later given first aid before being sent to a hospital.

However, the man pleaded innocence.

"I didn't have anything to eat and just wanted to sit there, won't do it again," said Sujeet Kumar, person who attempted to jump over boundary wall of Hindon Air Base in Ghaziabad.
