Lucknow, Dec 19 (IANS) Four people were shot dead in Uttar Pradesh’s Etawah on Saturday, apparently as a result of a simmering political rivalry, police said.
The incident took place in Bankati village of Jaswantnagar when a verbal spat turned ugly between two rival groups, leading to one side opening indiscriminate fire.
While four people — Guddu Yadav, Asharam, Devendra Singh and Dhaniram — were killed, four others were injured and admitted to a medical facility in Saifai, the native village of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
Police said the incident took place as a result of some issue following the recent panchayat polls.
No one has been arrested so far.
