Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh): Two persons were shot dead within 15 minutes in two different places on Friday night and one of them died in hospital, the police said on Saturday.
According to reports, in the first incident, a band of goons shot at a 23-year-old youth, Yash Rathore and the bullet pierced through his lungs. The injured was rushed to a hospital where he died.
A cousin of Yash said alleged that the family members of the girl, whom the youth wanted to marry, shot him dead. The incident took place on Mangleshwar road in Ghasmandi area.
The police said the incident had taken place when Yash was returning from the house of a relative, Narendra.
Just as he was passing by Mangleshwar road, three persons came out of the blue and began to beat him up. When Yash offered resistance, they shot at him.
The bullet passed through his lungs. Immediately after the incident, Yash’s friends rushed him to a hospital where he died.
When the police questioned Yash’s family members, Narendra said Yash had an affair with a girl with whom Yash used to talk to.
Nevertheless, her family members were opposed to her relationship with Yash. There was a dispute between the members of the girl and Yash ten days ago.
