Three men shot dead a businessman on his way home in Uttar Pradesh’s Azamgarh district on Friday. The victim, identified as 38-year-old Pintu Jaiswal, was riding his motorcycle when the three men killed him at around 6 pm.
The miscreants, also on a bike, overtook Jaiswal and shot him in the neck before fleeing the scene. The man succumbed to his injuries and died on the spot.
Superintendent of Police (SP) Azamgarh, Anurag Arya briefed the media about the incident. “We received information about the incident under Mehnajpur police station. It appears that the murder was committed over a land dispute,” Arya said.
Preliminary inquiries in the case revealed an ongoing land dispute between Jaiswal and a local family with members Ramji Yadav, Ramkrishna Yadav, Yogesh Yadav, and their relatives, police said.
The disputed land, purchased by the victim a few months ago, was in the possession of the Yadavs, leading to tensions between the two parties.
“We will register a complaint and take strict action against the culprits. Forensic evidence collected at the scene will be thoroughly analysed. The accused will face legal consequences under the Gangster Act,” SP Arya added.
The victim’s body has been sent for a post mortem examination as further investigation continues.
This incident highlights the prevalence of violent disputes over land ownership in India. Land disputes often escalate into serious conflicts, resulting in loss of life and property. The government should take necessary measures to address these issues and ensure the safety of its citizens.
It is crucial for the authorities to resolve land disputes promptly and fairly to prevent such tragic incidents from occurring. Additionally, raising awareness and educating people about peaceful resolution methods can help reduce the frequency of violent confrontations.
The loss of Pintu Jaiswal’s life is a tragic reminder of the urgent need for effective land dispute resolution mechanisms in India.
