Ghazipur : An RSS worker was on Saturday shot dead by bike-borne assailants here and his brother suffered a bullet injury while trying to save him, police said.

The three assailants brandishing firearms attacked RSS worker Rajesh Mishra (40), who is also a journalist, when he and his brother were sitting in their building material shop in Brahmanpura Chatti this morning, circle officer Hridayanad Singh said. Mishra was shot in his head.

When his brother Amitesh Mishra (35) intervened, he was shot in the abdomen, Singh said.

The brothers were taken to the district hospital, where Rajesh was declared brought dead, while Amitesh was referred to Varanasi for treatment.
