Ghaziabad | Three bike-borne assailants shot dead a former district vice president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) in the early hours Monday in Ghaziabad’s Loni, police said.
Bhagat singh Khari (30) was shot at when he was on his way to collect milk from cattle owners in Chirori town for selling at his shop, they said.
