BAREILLY (UP): A Samajwadi Party local leader and his son were shot dead in broad daylight in Sambhal district of Uttar Pradesh on Tuesday morning. The double murder of Chhote Lal Diwakar and Sunil was apparently a fallout of a dispute over laying of a road under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA). The entire incident was shot on camera.

巴雷利(北方邦):周二早上,在北方邦的桑布尔地区,一名社会党的地方领导人和他的儿子在光天化日之下遭到枪杀。这两人(Chhote Lal Diwakar和Sunil)被谋杀,显然是铺设道路引起争议的结果,这条道路是MGNREGA(圣雄甘地全国农村就业保障法)计划的产物。这起事件被摄像机完整的拍摄下来。

Police said that the incident took place at Fatehpur Shamshoi village under Behjoi police station limits. Upon getting information, superintendent of police Yamuna Prasad rushed to the spot and said that a manhunt has been launched for the assailants. Police said that one of the accused has been identified as Savinder, a local strongman.

警方表示,该事件发生在Fatehpur Shamshoi村,为Behjoi警察局管辖。得到消息后,警长Yamuna Prasad赶到现场,并称已经对袭击者展开了追捕。警方表示,其中一名嫌犯已被确认为当地强人Savinder。

“We have detained four persons who are being interrogated. Three teams have been formed to arrest the assailant and the matter is being investigated,” the SP said, adding that the bodies have been sent for post-mortem examination.


It is learnt that Diwakar and his son had a verbal argument with two persons over an issue of the narrow lane, which cuts across the field in the village, being built under MGNREGA scheme. The accused had reached the spot carrying two loaded rifles. Soon, the heated argument went horribly wrong and the accused pumped bullets into Diwakar and his son and escaped the scene leaving their motorbike behind. Diwakar’s wife has been a village head in the past.


After the incident, a large number of SP workers reached the village. Meanwhile, police force has been deployed at the village to ensure that no untoward incident takes place further.
