A 33-year-old salesman at a liquor shop in Jind was shot dead by three customers for refusing them water to mix with liqour. The victim, identified as Naresh Kumar, was shot dead in front of his father late Wednesday night at the liquor shop.

Mahabir, the father of the deceased, said he was with his son at the shop when three young men had come to purchase a bottle of liquor around 11 pm on Wednesday night.

After getting the bottle, they started drinking right outside the shop. A few minutes later, they tried entering the shop to get water kept with Naresh to mix with their drink. However, Naresh refused to give them water, asking them to take it from a tap installed outside. The three youths indulged in an argument, following which they left the spot.

However, they came back 10 minutes later and one of them fired a shot at Naresh and fled the spot. The bullet hit Naresh in his neck. He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced brought dead.

The police have registered a case against three unknown men under murder charges and various sections of the Arms Act. No arrest has been made yet.
