Two unidentified persons today shot the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) councillor, Mohammad Akbar, in Malerkotla. Around two years ago, Akbar’s brother Mohammad Anwar was also killed by the assailants, who were nabbed.
As per information, Akbar was at a gym when the incident took place. The assailants parked their motorcycle at the roadside and walked inside the gym.
One of them fired at Akbar and fled away. A CCTV footage of the accused going out of the gym after committing the crime has gone viral.
Later, the cops admitted Akbar to a hospital where doctors declared him brought dead. “We have obtained the CCTV footage and are conducting thorough probe. We have registered a murder case against unidentified persons,” said Harjinder Singh, SHO, City-1 police station.
Noor Mohammad, a relative of the victim, demanded a high-level inquiry into the incident. “Akbar had no personal enmity with anyone,” he said.
