A family of three was shot dead in Sitapur, Uttar Pradesh late Tuesday night by unidentified attackers. The attack took place at around 9.30 pm when businessman Sunil Jaiswal had just returned to his house in Civil Lines. News agency IANS reports that the attack was carried out by two unidentified men.

The bike-borne assailants shot Jaiswal, 60, his wife Kamini, 55, and his son Hrithik, 25, at point blank range. A neighbour, who tried to intervene, was also injured in the incident after the attackers shot him. News agency ANI reports that the attackers fled with cash.

While no arrests have been made yet, police suspect it to be a case of robbery. “The people seemed to be resisting a robbery attempt,” Additional Director General of Police, Abhay Kumar Prasad was quoted as saying by NDTV. Officials also suspect that the crime was carried out by seasoned criminals since the attackers had been carrying masks, reported IANS.

Locals also alleged that at the time of the crime they sought help from two constables nearby. However, they were turned away as the area was not under their jurisdiction. News agency IANS reported that the public threatened to shut the city if the attackers were not arrested within 24 hours. A week ago, another businessman, 36, was shot dead in Allahabad.

    There will be more murders, looting and arson because we not have a government that cares for people here. All they want showbiz. This dubious government must go, the earlier the better. In fact, no Indian citizen is happy about the government. The TVs and other social media channels are pro government and they refrained from showing the real life on the street. with such TV channels, namely Republic TV, Times Now TV, India Today TV etc.

      Murder in sitapur? So what? Ram the Lulla also murdered his wife Sita. Nothing new in cowbelt capital now being ruled by a ba5tard son of a cow with no known father and where Sanghi swamis rape gaumata to produce Vishnu avatar.

        If this had happened in Akhilesh Govt, it would have been termed another example of GOONDA RAJ. Now where are those people?

          Yogi Raj is completely Goondaraj. Yogi has failed to ruled over UP. This is unfortunate.

                  Yogi & Shah should teach Keralites how they are maintaining such fantastic law & order under UP model development.
