Bahujan Samaj Party Ghaziabad, July 21 (IANS) A councillor of the ruling Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) was Thursday night found murdered in the Loni area of Ghaziabad.

Sachin Chaudhary, the councillor from Ward No. 10 of Loni Nagar Palika Parishad, was found murdered in his Santro car, around 9 p.m., police said.

Chaudhary was found in a pool of blood on the driver’s seat of his car parked on the Delhi-Saharanpur Road, outside Punjab & Sind Bank in the Indirapuri Colony of Loni.

The body was found hit with two bullets wounds - one in the temple and the other on the left side of his head, police said.

Sachin was a cable operator by profession and was said to be involved in a dispute over the territory distribution of cable TV network. Around one and half months back, he was attacked by a group of men who opened fire on him. He, however, survived the attack and had got an FIR registered against some local people.

Superintendent of Police (City) J.K. Shahi, who reached the spot, said, “We are investigating the matter. It seems to be a case of rivalry.”
