A local leader of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) named Dayashankar Gupta was shot dead in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh on Friday night, police said Saturday.

He was attacked after he was walking through a marketplace after closing his shop, a police official said.

Police have detained three people in connection with the murder, apparently on the allegations made by Gupta’s family.

We are investigating the case and the people in detention are being questioned, the police official said.
