Phagwara (Punjab), Apr 24 (PTI) A 35-year-old man was shot dead outside his house at Ramgarh village here by two bike-borne men on Saturday, police said.

The deceased has been identified as Ram Lubhaya, said Phagwara Superintendent of Police (SP) Sarabjit Bahia.

Two motorcycle-borne men fired two shots from a pistol at Lubhaya when he was standing outside his house this morning, said Bahia.

Lubhaya was seriously injured and was rushed to a private hospital where he was declared brought dead, said the SP.

The family members of the deceased accused an non-resident Indian and his companion of committing the crime.

An old enmity between Lubhaya and the family of the accused might have led to the incident, police said.
