When two men accused of killing a wrestler were taken to a court in Uttar Pradesh, two arm-wielding men opened fire at them on Tuesday.

Two men, Surya Prakash and Mithilesh Giri, accused of killing a wrestler, Badal Yadav, in Dharmapur on May 6, were produced to the Diwani court, where they were shot at by the two assailants.

The assailants were apprehended soon after the incident by the lawyers present on the premises and handed them over to the police.

Both the murder accused were shifted to a district hospital and were later referred to Varasani as their condition remained critical.

Meanwhile, police are interrogating the shooters and are yet to disclose their identities.

The incident closely resembles the recent killing of gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf while they were being taken for a medical check in police custody last month.
