Caught on CCTV camera: Haryana Congress leader killed in broad daylight
Faridabad : Haryana Congress leader Vikas Chaudhary has been shot dead by the two unidentified men in a broad daylight near Delhi on Thursday morning. The incident has been caught on a CCTV camera installed at the place of incident.
As seen in the CCTV footage, the 38-year-old leader sits into his car parked outside his gym in Sector 9, moments after the attackers pump 10 bullets through the windscreen of the car. The murder happened around 9 am.
Both shooters managed to get away despite the presence of several people on the road.
The Congress leader was then rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.
The police said four men were involved in the crime, and they came in a Maruti Suzuki SX4 car. Investigations are on and the police are waiting for the post-mortem report.
The Congress party has slammed the BJP-led Manohar Lal Khattar government questioning Law and Order in the state. "It is not in my knowledge right now," the Chief Minister was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
Minutes before, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi tweeted: "The murder of the Congress spokesperson in Faridabad is condemnable, shameful and sad. This is a reflection of the deteriorating law and order in Faridabad."
"It's 'jungle raj", there is no fear of law. Same kind of incident happened yesterday, where a woman who opposed molestation was stabbed. There should be an investigation," Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
"We are deeply angered and saddened by this act of grotesque violence against a member of the Congress Party. We urge the Haryana government to bring the perpetrators to justice at the earliest. Our sincere condolences to his family in this time of grief," the Congress tweeted.
