New Delhi: In a sensational murder case, a Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) panchayat member, identified as Dilshad (35), was allegedly shot by two bike-borne assailants on Monday evening. He was killed after an alleged fallout between two parties over a property dispute in Zakir Nagar area of Southeast Delhi.

On Monday evening, the police received a call saying that a middle aged man had been shot in Batla House in Jamia Nagar area. Delhi police immediately cordoned off the murder spot and launched a primary investigation. He was declared brought dead by the doctors at Holy Family Hospital situated in New Friends Colony.

The preliminary investigation in the matter suggested that an argument led to an altercation, which allegedly further led to Dilshad being shot four times. On further probe, it was revealed that Dilshad, who is a resident of Joga Bai Extension in Jamia Nagar, was associated with the BSP. He was reportedly a member of panchayat in Sathla village of Meerut in Uttar Pradesh.
