Auto driver shot over parking row
A 25 year old autorickshaw driver was shot by another over a parking row at Vijay Nagar in Ghaziabad.
The accused 22-year-old driver was later beaten up by locals and handed over to the police.
The incident occurred near Military Ground on Thursday morning where auto driver Afsar, his father Liyakat and a friend Khursheed were sitting in their autos.
Soon, another driver Raju sped past them and parked his vehicle ahead of them.
The group objected and then thrashed Raju. He then called three of his accomplices, who thrashed the former. One of Raju’s friend, Pramod Kumar, then took out a country-made weapon and fired at Afsar.
“Afsar got a bullet in his face and was rushed to a hospital where he was declared dead. Pramod was nabbed and handed over to police,” Vijay Nagar station officer Rajesh Dwivedi said.
Pramod was later booked for murder after the victim’s father filed a complaint. Two of his accomplices are absconding.
