Rajasthan: Businessman shot dead; locals protest murder

Jaipur: Protesting against the murder of a businessman, locals on Saturday blocked a highway in Dausa district of Rajasthan demanding immediate arrest of the culprits.

Rammanohar was shot dead last night in the city by unidentified assailants after which a bus was set ablaze by locals, police said today.

No one was injured in the incident, they said. As main markets in the district remained closed as a mark of protest, a delegation led by Dausa MP Kirori Meena today met senior officials and demanded action.

While they were temporarily pacified by the officials, the MP has given an ultimatum of 48-hours to police to arrest the accused.

The matter was being investigated and efforts were on to trace those responsible for the crime, police said.
