AGRA: A 29-year-old man, who allegedly shot dead the father of a woman he had been accused of molesting three years ago, remained missing on Wednesday as Hathras police announced a reward of Rs 1 lakh on any information leading to his arrest. Several police teams have been formed to nab Gaurav Sharma.
Gaurav’s profile on social media platforms shed some light on his interests. A BTech from SRM Institute, Ghaziabad, he has posted many photographs brandishing guns, some of them were shared widely on Facebook. He is also seen posing with local party members from almost all parties — SP, BJP and BSP. He can also be seen standing with BJP MP from Aligarh Satish Gautam and ex- BSP minister Ramveer Upadhyaya. Some tied him to SP but the party rebutted it. An SP delegation led by former cabinet minister Ramji Lal Suman met the woman’s family members on Wednesday. Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has already distanced himself from Gaurav. Police have arrested two more co-accused in the case.
