SHAHJAHANPUR: An Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) constable on Saturday shot a 30-year-old man dead and injured his sister in Choti Koilara village here following a dispute over a trivial issue.

Krishna Kumar Jaiswal who was at the village on leave, had a heated debate with his neighbor, Collector Yadav, over parking of the latter's motorcycle on Saturday night, said Superintendent of Police (SP) D P N Pandey.

Jaiswal beat up Yadav over the same issue on Sunday afternoon, and when his sister rushed to help him, opened several rounds from his licensed .315 bore rifle, said the SP. Both Yadav and his sister were rushed to Varanasi hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
Four of those named in the FIR, including Jaiswal, have been arrested while the hunt is on for two others, said the SP, adding that additional force has been deployed in the area and the situation is under control.
