A 17-year-old youth was shot dead over an alleged argument on offering prayers in a temple. The police says it was a dispute over a sum of Rs 5,000.
The Superintendent of Police, Vipin Tada, the police superintendent for Amroha, believes that the killing was related to a financial issue connecting the victim's brother and the assailants. He contradicted the victim's fathers' statement and said that the incident had nothing to do with caste bias but rather a dispute over a sum of Rs 5,000 and a contract about a mango orchard. The investigation is still ongoing, and the final report is still awaited.
