Jamshedpur, June 23: In a heinous incident, a 30-year-old youth was lynched by a group of villagers shortly after he had shot dead a 40-year-old man in West Singhbhum district on Tuesday evening.

The incident took place at Gara Rajbasa village under Pandrasali police station outpost in Chaibasa muffasil police station area.

West Singhbhum SP, Ajay Linda, said the incident took place while Sideu was playing cards along with five others at a place near the village market.

“During the investigation we found that Sideu was busy playing cards along with five other villagers, Lambu arrived there and sat there for a while. Incidentally, a hot talk took place between them. Within seconds, Lambu took out a country-pistol from his waist and fired a shot at Sideu from close range, causing the latter to fall down instantly. Lambu tried to flee the spot, but those present there caught him up and thrashed him to death, “said a police official.

A police party reached the scene in about half-an-hour and rushed both the victims to Chaibasa Sadar Hospital. The doctors on emergency duty declared both the victims dead.

The senior police officer said that they are yet to ascertain the content that led Lambu to open fire on Sideu.

“Those who were playing cards with Sideu are not willing about what had gone wrong between the two that prompted Lambu to open fire, “said the officer. He stated that they are trying to identify those involved in the lynching. The police have recovered the pistol that was used in Sideu’s murder.
