Suri,a factional leader,was shot dead by unidentified persons in his car at Yousufguda here yesterday,police said.
After his autopsy at the Osmania General Hospital here,the body of the 39-year-old was handed over to his family members.
Forensic Dr Narayana Reddy,who was among the team who conducted autopsy,told PTI that Suri died on the spot after two bullets pierced his head,damaging brain and spinal cord.
