The incident took place in the Shahpur Dasar village under Asmoli police circle in Sambhal on Monday evening.

Two groups of children, playing ‘gilli-danda’, entered into a dispute over the game which turned violent when their families — both political rivals — got involved in the matter.

The two families of Anees and Asim, pelted stones at each other and one of them opened fire which left a 65-year-old man dead and four injured.

The deceased, identified as Abdul Razaak, had returned home after offering prayers when he was hit by a bullet. He was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.

The injured persons, including a woman, have been hospitalised.

Superintendent of Police (SP) Chakresh Mishra said that based on the complaint by Razaak’s family, a case has been registered under various IPC sections against those allegedly involved. He said that further investigations are underway.
