Anuj Chaudhary is a journalist with Sahara Samay, a Hindi news channel. He is currently being treated in a hospital and is said to be stable.
The police said preliminary investigation suggested personal enmity was the reason behind the attack. Other possible angles are also being probed, they said. Mr Chaudhary is the husband of a BSP councillor.
"The firing incident occurred due to old enmity," senior Superintendent of Police Vaibhav Krishna told news agency PTI.
Mr Chaudhary had just returned home after a visit to Razapur village when the gunmen, wearing helmets, barged into his home, the officer said.
Four teams have been constituted by the police to track down the attackers, news agency ANI reported.
