A trader was fatally shot while sleeping in his SUV at a Dhaba parking lot in Haryana on Sunday morning by unidentified assailants. This incident occurred shortly after another incident where an INLD leader was also shot dead by unknown gunmen who ambushed his SUV.

The recent occurrence took place at Gulshan Dhaba in Murthal, Haryana, around 8:30 am. The victim, identified as Sunder Malik, aged 38, was a liquor trader hailing from Saragthal village in Gohana.

The CCTV footage reveals the trader, clad in an orange hoodie and trousers, staggering out of his SUV amidst the barrage of gunfire from two assailants. In a desperate attempt to defend himself, the trader grapples with one attacker, managing to bring him down momentarily, while the other shooter relentlessly fires bullets at him. Despite the trader’s struggle, the attackers overpower him, and one continues to shoot until the victim is incapacitated. The dhaba owner promptly alerted the authorities upon witnessing the harrowing scene.
