ADITYAPUR (JHARKHAND): Three persons have been shot dead in the industrial town of Adityapur in Jharkhand’s Seraikela-Kharswan district, with the police suspecting it to be a case of gang rivalry, a senior officer said on Wednesday.
One of the deceased, Ashish Gorai (28), had a criminal record.
He was jailed in the past in connection with the murder of a local Congress leader, superintendent of police Anand Prakash said.
“We are looking into the matter, trying to identify the killers. Preliminary investigation suggests that the incident was the fallout of a gang rivalry,” the SP stated.
Ashish was partying with his friends — Rajiv Gorai and Subir Chatterjee — in Adityapur police station area, when two persons arrived in a four-wheeler and fired indiscriminately upon them on Tuesday night, according to locals and his family members.
The trio was taken to a nearby hospital, where the doctors declared them ‘brought dead’.
Police sources said that Ashish had a tiff with one local goon, Chotu, recently.
“We are probing the case from all angles. The culprits will be nabbed soon,” the SP added.
