According to the police, the man was a resident of Gorakhpur, UP. He had allegedly shot dead a teacher earlier today using his father’s gun.
Local reports suggest that a school teacher was shot dead on Monday morning. After the teacher’s assassination, the miscreant climbed onto the roof of his house and tried to spread terror by air firing.
The people informed the police and when the police arrived, he surrendered and was taken down by the police. While he was being led to a police vehicle, the villagers allegedly dragged him over and attacked him.
The villagers were not willing to hand over the miscreant to the police under any circumstances. Tense still persists on the spot.
