SINDRI: BJP’s Kendua committee vice-president Satish Singh (34) was shot dead on Wednesday afternoon at Matkuria Main Road, barely a kilometre away from the heart of Dhanbad city’s Bank More. Singh was also a land broker. SP (City) R Ramkumar said an investigation has begun and the criminals will be nabbed soon.
Sources said Satish alighted from a car at Matkuria Main Road around 3pm and was walking towards Vikash Nagar talking on his phone when two bike-borne miscreants wearing helmets approached him from behind. The pillion rider alighted from and shot him point blank and fled towards Vikash Nagar. The entire episode has been captured in the CCTV camera of a nearby house. People took him to Patliputra Medical College and Hospital, where doctors declared him brought dead.
BJP’s Dhanbad MLA Raj Sinha said, “One bullet pierced his neck and it seems to have caused his death. It appears to be a planned murder and the manner in which it was carried out indicates the state of the law and order situation in the district.”
