Kanpur: A retired principal was shot dead by some unidentified assailants when he was returning from a school after a teaching session, police said on Tuesday.
Ramesh Shukla, 62, a resident of Vishnupuri village, had retired from the post of principal two years ago but used to teach students out of his passion for teaching.
Yesterday evening, when he was returning from the school on his bicycle, some unidentified assailants shot him. The bullets pierced his back and waist. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. The police are suspecting a family feud behind the killing.
“A feud regarding a family land has surfaced. We have registered an FIR against some unidentified people and the investigations are underway. We will nab them soon,” SSP Akash Kulhari said.
