A 30-year-old TV journalist was shot dead by car-borne assailants allegedly following an argument on the busy Jharsa Road on Friday afternoon in Gurugram.

Times of India reports that Surender Singh Rana, the Haryana state coordinator of a Jammu-based news channel, JK 24×7 News. Police said the murder was the fallout of a monetary dispute.

A Santro came and stopped in front of Surender’s Safari a few minutes later. Three men and a woman got out of the car, and asked Surender to step out too. An argument ensued between the journalist and the accused, and one of the men managed to get hold of Surender’s licensed revolver hidden under his T-shirt and pumped six bullets into him. Later, the accused fled in their car, reports TOI.

The case has been registered at the Civil Lines police station under Sections 302 (murder), 34 (murderous act committed by several person) of the IPC and 25-54-59 of the arms act. Police, however, said they were not sure if Surender’s gun was used in his murder. Investigating is underway.
