A Shiv Sena leader was allegedly shot dead in Punjab's Gurdaspur district last week by three youths over a dispute. Ajay Thakur, 25, was about to board a bus from a bus stand in Purana Shalla area. Three youths, who have been identified, came on a motorcycle and one of them pulled out a gun and opened fire at Thakur. He was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, the police said. Senior police official Swarndeep Singh said, "There is no terror or any other angle behind this incident. The only thing which has come to the fore so far is that the accused had a dispute with him over some issue." The accused are currently at large, but will be arrested soon.
