Gurgaon: The driver of a Gurgaon councillor was shot dead allegedly over an old rivalry, triggering a retaliatory attack in which another man was shot at and injured, police said today.
Ashok Kumar was found dead in a Swift car parked near Independent councillor Binder Gujjar’s house on Basai road this morning, a police spokesman said.
There were marks of bullet injuries on the body. Kumar might have been murdered last night or early this morning, but it would be confirmed only after the post-mortem report is received, he said.
