A swimming coach was shot dead by a group of men at Baba Ganganath Sports Complex in south Delhi, police said on Friday.

The incident took place at 11.15pm on Thursday night.

Some eyewitnesses said Trilok Tokas, who was responsible for managing the complex in Munirka, allegedly roughed up some people who were hanging around near the swimming pool.

He wanted them to leave the complex immediately as it had been closed for the day. The eyewitnesses alleged that the very same men then came back and shot him dead.

However, his family alleged that it is an act borne out of jealousy as Tokas had recently won contracts to take coaching classes in seven complexes in Delhi.
