The victim, Altaf Ansari (35), was sitting in a black car near the Pantaloons showroom in Hinoo when motorbike-borne men fired at him indiscriminately. Altaf was grievously injured after being hit by four bullets. The killers fled from the spot as people, hearing gunshots, ran for cover.
Local people later rushed the victim to Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences but he died on the way.
One of Altaf’s friends, Md Jilani, said that the victim had informed the local police about a threat to his life but the cops did not pay any heed.
The police on Wednesday evening said the family of the victim is yet to file an FIR. While stating that time would be given as the relatives are in shock, the police said they have already launched an investigation and added that they would register the case if required.
City superindent of police Saurav who visited the spot after the crime said, “The police will investigate all angles. The closed-circuit television cameras, the victim’s call record, movement of the criminals and witnesses are being examined. Prima facie the crime is related to a land dispute.”
He added that cases were also registered against Altaf in different police stations.
