According to Ismael’s younger brother, Akbar Khan (30), the victim was going to his farm in Salempur Gurjar village early Saturday morning when a group of people ambushed and shot at him. “Ismael has a property dispute with our older brother, Akhtar Khan. Akhtar along with his three sons – Babli, Sameer, Bhola, and two other accomplices – Raju and Manish – followed Ismael to the farm. They surrounded him and started abusing him. When Ismael put up resistance, they opened fire at him,” he said.
