A member of a group of pilgrims from Punjab en route to Nanded Sahib in Maharashtra was shot dead by an unidentified car-borne assailant in Rohtak late Tuesday night.
The 50-odd pilgrims were travelling in a truck. When their vehicle reached near Jind bypass in Rohtak around midnight, the occupants of a car tried to overtake it. A little later, the car came parallel to the truck and one of the men in the car fired a shot at the truck’s occupants and fled.
The bullet hit Gurpreet Singh (28) of Rampur Kaler village in Fatehgarh Sahib.
The occupants of the truck later told the police that they could see only the initial part of the car’s registration number (HR-49). Gurpreet was rushed to a hospital where he was declared dead by the doctors. Investigators believe it may be a case of road rage.
