Two unidentified armed youngsters opened fire in Rohtak’s Baliyana village, killing a property dealer named Sanjay on Wednesday morning. The shootout took place in full public view at around 8 am.
Preliminary investigations conducted by the police reveal that the assailants had come to kill another man “VC”, but Sanjay got killed in a case of mistaken identity.
Both VC and Sanjay were wearing black T-shirts and they run a property-related business in the area. Sanjay was sitting outside his office when the assailants came on a motorbike and opened fire from point-blank range.
Sanjay sustained at least three bullet hits and tried to run away from the spot. He had barely covered a few yards when the assailants chased him and opened fire at him again. It appears he received nearly a dozen bullet injuries and died on the spot.
“We are further investigating the matter,” one of the investigating police officers told Indian Express.
