AMRITSAR: Hindu Surakasha Sena (HSS) leader Vipin Sharma was shot dead by two unidentified assailants in Amritsar's Bharat Nagar area on Monday morning. Sharma was the Amritsar district president of HSS.
The entire shootout was captured on CCTV camera.
"Two people fired several bullets at him. We are trying to extract the photos of the criminals from the CCTV footage," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Jagmohan Singh.
The police are currently trying to identify the assailants.
"We cannot specify anything for now. We have constituted a SIT(Special Investigative Team) for investigation. They are raiding different locations in search of clues," said the DCP.
Two weeks ago, on October 17, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Ravinder Gosai was also shot dead by unidentified assailants in Ludhiana's Kailash Nagar. The 60-year-old was returning home from the RSS Shakha, when unidentified men on a motorcycle shot at him.
