Patna: Police said that a pan masala vendor was gunned down by unidentified men in Bihar's Muzaffarpur city on Monday.
Govind Kumar was attacked on Sunday night after the assailants barged into his house, according to police.
The house stands just 200 meters from the town police station. They shot him in the drying room.
"There is complete lawlessness in the city. Hence, crime cases frequently take place here. The criminals used to demand extortion from traders and industrialists in the city. The criminals should be arrested and speedy trial be held," Vijendra Chaudhary, the deceased's uncle said.
"After closing the shop, he returned home around 9 p.m. on Sunday. As soon as he entered the house, the accused, who were probably following him, barged inside and fired upon Govind Kumar indiscriminately. He sustained multiple gunshot injuries and died during the treatment," he added.
Confirming the death, Jayant Kant, the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Muzaffarpur, said that the accused had fired up on Govind Kumar inside the house.
Govind Kumar succumbed to multiple gunshot injuries and excessive bleeding.
