The life of a nine-year-old girl shot in a botch gangland assassination attempt at a restaurant in east London hangs in the balance as she fights for her life on a ventilator, it’s claimed.

The youngster was shot in the head and surgeons at a London hospital where she is being treated have so far been unable to remove the bullet.

Grandmother Mary, from India, is quoted by the New Indian Express newspaper saying: ‘The child is on the ventilator.

‘Even after major surgery, the doctors haven’t been able to remove the bullet.

‘Another major operation is scheduled after two days.

‘We are praying to God for her survival and full recovery.’

The grandmother revealed that the girl’s parents were both IT professionals who do not live in the capital.

The family had come to London to meet up with family friends and went to the restaurant in Hackney for dinner on Wednesday evening when the youngster was caught in the crossfire.

Yesterday detectives appealed to members of London’s Turkish and Kurdish communities for information about the ‘reckless’ shooting in which the girl was caught in the crossfire.

The Met also released a photograph of the stolen Ducati Monster that the gunman was riding when he pulled up at the Evin Bistro in Dalston and fired five shots.

Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway said: ‘We know that the offender fired from a motorbike at approximately 9.20pm on Wednesday evening.

‘The bike was a Ducati Monster with a white body, red chassis and red wheels.

‘Our officers have now established that the motorbike was previously stolen in 2021 from a property in Wembley.

‘I want to hear from anyone who might recognise it – I’m particularly keen from you if you saw it on the day of the incident.’

He added: ‘We are specifically reaching out to our Turkish and Kurdish communities, particularly in north and east London, who I know are shocked and appalled by this crime.

‘This is because the three men who were shot have connections to those communities.’

Meanwhile it has emerged that one of the men blasted in the drive-by shooting was jailed for his part in an horrific acid attack just yards from the latest crime scene.

Mustafa Kiziltan was sentenced to 36 months prison for his part in the unprovoked chemical assault of a Good Samaritan outside a gay bar in Dalston in May 2018.

On Wednesday night Kiziltan was shot in the leg in the gangland shooting outside the Evin Bistro that also targeted two others. The nine-year-old was also hit and remains in a critical condition in hospital.

Five years earlier, he was part of a nine-strong gang that squirted acid at a passer-by when he intervened in a homophobic attack outside the Dalston Superstore night club, that is next door to the Even Bistro in Kingsland High Street.

The witness was set upon when he began filming the thugs kicking and stamping on a man curled up on the floor.

Three adults and a child were found with gunshot injuries at the scene. They have all been taken to a major trauma centre

The thugs were jailed at Wood Green Crown Court for a total of 57 years and 10 months.

Mustafa Kiziltan pleaded guilty to violent disorder and was sentenced to 30 months prison. His younger brother Serkan also pleaded guilty to violent disorder and was sentenced to 18 months.

Yesterday Serkan Kiziltan confirmed that his brother Mustafa was one of the three men shot outside the Evin Bistro by a motor bike assassin on Wednesday night.

He told the Mail: ‘My brother is in hospital. He was shot. I don’t want to talk about it.’

A family friend added: ‘Mustafa was at the Evin café on Wednesday night. He is one of three men that was shot. I believe he was shot in the leg. He is hospital now.’
