Even as political murders are making headlines in several parts of India, a spine-chilling CCTV footage showing an RSS leader being shot dead has surfaced from Punjab’s Amritsar.
The deceased has been identified as district chief of Hindu Sangharsh Sena Vipin Kumar. The gruesome murder that took place in a busy market in Bharat Nagar was captured in a CCTV camera installed in the vicinity.
Kumar along with another person were seen riding a bike, while two other people brandishing guns intercepted them. While Kumar fell on ground after being shot, another person who accompanied him fled from the spot.
Moments later, one of the two persons who had covered their face rained bullets on Kumar who had fallen on the ground. The accused fired five rounds on Kumar. Following the incident, the police have launched a manhunt to track down the accused.
Police said that apart from being a Hindu Suraksha Samiti leader, Kumar also dedicated time to Jai Shanker Welfare Society that worked towards feeding the poor.
The horrific incident took place while two other murders of RSS leaders are being investigated by CBI and NIA respectively. There also have been allegations of delayed action from Punjab police and administration.
