One person was killed and another injured when unidentified gunmen barged into a booze joint, opposite HMC School, Sewak Colony, where the two were drinking and shot them at point blank range, Tuesday at around 6.30 p.m. The deceased was identified as Mahesh, a resident of Sachu colony, who had recently returned from Delhi after undergoing training at a call centre, while the injured was identified as Sibu Thakur, son of Pokendar Thakur, a barber and resident of Sewak colony. According to the injured Sibu, two masked gunmen entered the booze joint and after asking Sibu and Mahesh “how many of you have come?” fired at them at point blank range and left. Mahesh who was shot on the forehead died on the spot, while Sibu sustained bullet injury on the hip and was rushed to Civil Hospital.
