Three family members shot dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur
Three people of a family were killed late on Tuesday by unidentified assailants in Sitapur district of Uttar Pradesh.
Police said the deceased Sunil Jaiswal (60) and his wife Kamini (55) had come back home late night and had just rung the door bell when two unidentified bike-borne assailants came and opened indiscriminate fire on them. Hrithik (25), their son, opened the door and was also shot.
All the three died on the spot. A man who tried to raise an alarm was also shot at by the assailants before they fled.
Residents alleged that when the crime was taking place, they stopped two police constables and sought help but they refused, saying the area was not under their jurisdiction. The locals also threatened to shut the city if the assailants were not arrested in 24-hours.
An official told IANS the crime appears to have been executed by professionals as they were wearing masks and appeared to have done a recce of the area before they committed the crime. So far, the police have not been able to identify the reason behind the murders.
