Guest teacher shot dead in Delhi

New Delhi


 A guest teacher was on Monday shot dead by four to five unidentified assailants in north Delhi, police said.

Police said Deepak, 31, a resident of Tajpur Kalan in west Delhi, was found lying in a pool of blood near the MCD primary school in Swaroop Nagar.

Prima facie, it appears to be a case of personal animosity, police said, adding that all possible angles to the crime were being probed.

The armed assailants riding a car called Deepak near to school around 4.30 p.m. and fired at him following an argument. Deepak was shot half a dozen times. 

Deepak died on the spot while his assailants fled the spot. 

"We are examining closed-circuit television footage from nearby areas to ascertain the identities of the accused," a senior police officer said. - IANS
