Three people were arrested for shooting a 17-year-old Dalit boy for reportedly praying in a temple in a village in Amroha. Along with this, a sub-inspector was shunted to police lines for 'negligence' in the case.

The police have lodged a case under IPC Section 302 and SC-ST Act against the four people – Lala Chauhan, Horam Chauhan, Jasveer and Bhushan.

While Horam and Lala have been arrested, the other two are on the run.

The police arrested Deepak for allegedly providing the weapon and motorcycle to Horam.

According to the deceased, Vikas Jatav’s father, his son was murdered on the night of June 6 at Domkheda village under Hasanpur police station in Amroha, while he was sleeping outside his house.

The deceased's father, Om Prakash Jatav, alleged that the killers had picked up a fight with his son for entering a village temple on May 31.

However, SP Amroha Vipin Tada denied the father’s charges saying that the initial report suggests of a dispute between Vikas’s elder brother and the accused over money.

The police maintained that the murder was the result of an altercation between the two accused, and the elder brother of the deceased, over a sum of Rs 5,000.
