Sub-divisional police officer Anwar Javed Ansari said that outlaws fired on the youth, identified as Shahrukh, leaving him seriously injured. He said police reached the spot and rushed the youth to Narayan Medical College where he died during treatment.
Mr Ansari said Shahrukh was murdered due to his personal enmity and he had criminal antecedents too.
An FIR had been lodged at the police station concerned in this connection.
Infuriated over the incident, local people blocked a road by keeping the body near Ambedkar Chowk considered as the busiest roundabout of the town this morning.
The road blockade was lifted after senior police authorities pacified the agitated people by assuring early arrest of Shahrukh`s murderers. The body had been sent for autopsy, police officer added.
