Chandigarh, February 26

A CCTV footage showing the movements of assailants in a car--who in broad daylight killed Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) Haryana president Nafe Singh Rathi and his associate--has surfaced online.

The assailants were seen moving in a Hyundai i10 just before the crime. Rathi's Toyota Fortuner stopped at the railway crossing and the assailants were seen parking the car behind his car.

Five men got off, and started indiscriminate firing at the Toyota Fortuner. Rathi (66) and one of his aides were killed in the shooting, and two others were left critically injured.

The CCTV footage is from the area in Jhajjar district. The car is seen following the SUV as it approached the railway crossing. The same camera captured the car returning 20 minutes later.

Police are also examining the CCTV footage near Barahi village in which the assailants were seen parking the car behind Rathi's car and they were seen running away in the same car after the crime.

Nafe Singh Rathi was in the passenger seat of his SUV and his nephew was driving when the assailants waylaid the vehicle near the Barahi level-crossing and opened firing from close range.
