A 38-year-old BJP worker Kishore Godadi was shot dead by some unidentified assailants at Kisanwadi area Wednesday night, police said today.
"He was shot at repeatedly by the attackers and received injuries on his throat", said BJP corporator Hitendra Patel, who rushed Godadi to hospital where he was declared dead on admission.
Godadi was attacked when he was returning on his motorcycle after attending a meeting of local party workers organised by Patel at his residence, police said.
"We suspect involvement of several people in the crime and hope to get some clues soon", Police Commissioner Satish Sharma said.
Police are trying to ascertain the motive behind the killing. The deceased was acquitted in a murder case some years back and was also associated with VHP and Bajrang Dal for some time.
