Amid the ongoing lockdown, a gang war shook Gurugram.

A 30-year-old history-sheeter and gangster was gunned down by unidentified assailants in sector 9 on late Thursday night.

An FIR has been registered against the five assailants at sector 9A police station.

According to the police, the deceased is identified as Rahul—a resident of Firoz Gandhi colony—who died on the spot with 8 bullet shots.

He was involved in over 10 cases of murder, murder attempts and arms act. He was also involved in the murder of slain gangster Neetu Gehlot in 2008.

According to the preliminary investigations, Rahul, along with some local youths, were guarding the entry to his colony after 11:30 pm.

We are conducting raids and the accused will be nabbed soon", said, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Crime, Preet Pal Singh Sangwan.
