Noida (UP), Oct 5 (PTI) A man allegedly shot himself dead in Uttar Pradesh's Greater Noida on Monday over a domestic dispute, police said.
The incident took place in Bisahda village and the deceased has been identified as Vikram Pratap Singh alias Vicky, son of former village head Sanjay Rana, the police said.
'Singh had shot himself at home and was taken by family members to a hospital. Further proceedings are underway in the case. He had no link with the Bisahda case,' the district police said in a statement.
Bisahda village had grabbed headlines after a mob attacked a 52-year-old man, Mohammad Akhlaq, alleging he had stored beef in his house. The infamous episode had come to be known as 'Dadri lynching'.
However, the police clarified that the deceased, who shares the same name as one of the accused in the lynching episode, had nothing to do with this case.
Vikram, who was scheduled to get married later this month, died in the hospital, according to locals, who added that he took the extreme step due to a domestic conflict. PTI KIS TDS TDS
