Brutally injured, Singh tried to step out of his car and entered the building. He was rushed to the hospital where he died during treatment. The victims’ body was sent for a post mortem.
Lucknow Police Commissioner Sujit Pandey said that the victim reportedly had an argument with a junior earlier when he had gone to Barabanki to celebrate his friend’s birthday. An investigation is underway.
