RAMGARH: Two persons including the father of murdered gangster Kishore Pandey were shot dead while a shooter was caught today in Patratu under Patratu police station of Ramgarh district.

As many as five miscreants on two motorcycles came and opened fire on 65-year-old Kameshwar Pandey, who was the brother of slained gangster Bhola Pandey and father of slained gangster Kishore Pandey, DIG Upendra Kumar said adding, one shooter has been arrested with the help of local residents. One of the shooters, who was chased by the local people, was also killed, Kumar said.

Prima facie, the DIG said, it seems to be a part of a gang war, but it could only be confirmed after interrogation of the nabbed shooter. The incident was suspected to be the fall out of long-standing rivalry between slained gangster Sushil Srivastava and Bhola Pandey of Patratu.

While Kishore Pandey, nephew of Bhola Pandey, and his bodyguard were killed in a shootout in Kadma market in Jamshedpur in October last year, Srivastava and two of his henchmen were killed in a shootout inside the premises of Hazaribagh court in June last.

The rivalry was mainly to maintain supremacy in the extortion business in Ramgarh district. Earlier in February 2010, an unidentified miscreant had gunned down gangster Bhola Pandey in police custody, while he was being taken to the state capital from Dumka central

jail for production.. The incident had occurred near Mihijam in Jamtara district.
