A man was shot dead by two unidentified assailants in Delhi's Taimoor Nagar on Sunday. The incident took place in broad daylight in a busy area of South East Delhi's Taimoor Nagar.
In the CCTV camera footage, two men are seen walking past Rupesh Kumar, who was standing outside his house, when the second person wearing a cap, points his gun towards Rupesh and shoots him in the chest. The two men then casually walked out of the crime scene.
Rupesh was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
According to PTI, locals alleged that Rupesh was shot by two men suspected to be linked to drug peddlers. Rupesh was actively working against drug trade in the area, and his family claims that was the reason why he was attacked, the report said.
The killing triggered outrage amongst locals who staged a protest in the neighbourhood. Protestors burnt two motorcycles. When the police arrived to manage the crowd, the protestors pelted stones at the police personnel. In the melee, a policeman was injured and hospitalised, PTI said.
