New Delhi: Haryana Congress leader Vikas Chaudhary was shot at when he was coming out of the gym in Faridabad on Thursday.
Chaudhary is believed to have been shot at least 10 times. He was then rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his bullet injuries within a few minutes.
Speaking on the incident, Haryana Congress president Ashok Tanwar said, “It is ‘jungle raj’, there is no fear of law. Same kind of incident happened yesterday, where a woman who opposed molestation was stabbed. There should be an investigation.”
