August 16, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

An 18-year-old man was shot in the stomach yesterday morning by a man who was robbing his uncle's Indian restaurant in the 900 block of N. Charles St., police said.

The robber, described as a tall, muscular man, entered the Mughal Garden Restaurant and Bar by a rear door about 8: 30 a.m. as the victim, Gurmeet Kular, a student at Meade Senior High School in Anne Arundel County, waited with an employee of owner Chanchal Dhandel for other relatives with whom he was to travel to Rockville to celebrate an Indian holiday.

Agent Ragina L. Cooper, a police spokeswoman, said the robber ordered Kular to the cash register before shooting him in the stomach.

The man then took an undisclosed amount of money and fled.

Kular was in serious condition yesterday at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center.
