Meerut (Uttar Pradesh), April 11 (IANS) Unidentified assailants Friday killed a manager of a sugar mill in Uttar Pradesh and then within 15 minutes also killed a village council head for allegedly refusing to pay protection money. According to police sources, two criminals barged into the office of Siddharth Upadhyay, deputy general manager of Bajaj sugar mill, in Kinoni village of Meerut district, and shot him.
Within minutes of this shooting, the same gang killed a local village head.
According to sources, Upadhyay was killed because he had refused to pay regular protection money to a local goon, and the village head was killed because he created hurdles in the gang’s extortion racket.
Inspector General of Police V.K. Gupta said Upadhayay knew the criminals and that mill owners invited trouble upon themselves by taking help of criminals for tackling labour problems.
