KASGANJ: Another accused in the killing of Chandan Gupta during a rally on Republic Day in Kasganj town of Uttar Pradesh today surrendered before a local court, police said.

"Asif Gymwala, who was named as an accused in the Chandan Gupta murder case, surrendered in the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate. The court has sent him to jail," Superintendent of Police Piyush Srivastava said.

Gupta died of gunshot wounds after he was shot at during the motorcycle rally taken out to celebrate Republic Day.
