Business News/ News / India/  Gangster Sanjeev Jeeva, accused in BJP leader murder case, shot dead outside Lucknow court

Gangster Sanjeev Jeeva has been shot outside the Lucknow Civil Court on Wednesday. The attacker who shot at Sanjeev Jeeva was reportedly disguised as a lawyer. The incident happened when the gangster, accused in the murder case of BJP leader Brahm Dutt Dwivedi, was brought to the Lucknow court.

Sanjeev Jeeva collapsed at the spot after being shot at while a police officer also sustained injuries.

DCP West and DCP Central reached the court premises after receiving word of the incident, said Assistant Commissioner of Police Sunil Kumar Mishra.

 “Sanjeev Jeeva was shot at today and succumbed to his injuries. Two of our constables also sustained injuries but are out of danger. They are currently under treatment. I've been told that the assailant has been arrested," Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Lucknow, Rahul Raj said.

“A child was also injured in the incident and was admitted to a trauma centre," Upendra Kumar Agarwal, joint commissioner of police, law and order, Lucknow, said.

After the incident, lawyers staged a protest outside Lucknow civil court.

Further details are awaited.
