A 48-year-old man in Uttar Pradesh's Chatela village was shot dead by his neighbours, police said on Tuesday.
The victim Amir Hamza alias Munna was at a betel shop in the village when the incident took place on Monday evening, Additional Superintendent of Police Rakesh Singh said.
The accused fled the spot after the incident, the officer added. A case was lodged against Rashid, Tariq, Nabi, Usman, Ibrahim, and two others, who are yet to be identified on a complaint by Hamza's brother Abdul Wahid, Singh said.
It seems to be a case of old enmity and efforts are on to nab the perpetrators, the officer said.
