Maharashtra: Army jawan shot dead by two civilians
An Army jawan was killed by two youth who allegedly snatched his service weapon and shot him in Bhusawal in North Maharashtra, police said on Monday.
The incident occurred in Jalgaon district's Bhusawal on Sunday night after an altercation between the armyman and the youth.
The two suspects, in their 20s, have been arrested and a case has been registered under section 302 of IPC, a police official said.
The 32-year-old jawan Shaikh Aquil Shaikh Rehman was a resident of Bhusawal and had gone to an adjacent locality where he got into a quarrel with the two youth, police said.
"The armyman then took out his service pistol which the youth snatched from him and shot him on his hand and abdomen.
He was rushed to the civil hospital at Jalgaon where he was declared dead," the official said.
