Muzaffarnagar: Three police teams have been formed to apprehend the two assailants who shot dead Akhil Gupta, a witness in the rape case against Asaram Bapu in Surat, Sunday evening.

Akhil's cousin Ashish Gupta has lodged an FIR against two unidentified persons, Senior Superintendent of Police H N Singh told PTI here today.

Three teams led by SP, city, Sarvan Kumar have been formed to trace the accused, he said.

Police are investigating various angles including whether the murder was linked to Asaram's case or it was a fallout of old enmity, officials said.

Akhil was returning home from his shop on a scooter when the two motorcycle-borne assailant shot at him. He was declared dead in district hospital last evening.

Gupta was a cook and personal aide of self-styled 'Godman' Asaram, who is in jail since September 2013 in connection with another case of sexual assault on a minor girl in Jodhpur.
