BAGHPAT (UP): Former BJP district chief Sanjay Khokhar was shot dead at his farm in Baghpat when he went out for a morning walk on Tuesday.

The incident took place in Chaprauli area of the Uttar Pradesh district.

According to reports, three unidentified men opened fire at Khokhar when he was out on a morning walk.

A video doing the rounds on social media showed Khokhar lying in a pool of blood in a narrow alley between the fields with big crowd of villagers and police personnel taking stock of the situation.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has expressed grief at the killing and ordered an investigation and has asked for a report within 24 hours. “We have carried out a prima facie investigation and it seems to be a case of personal enmity. However, we are going to investigate this thoroughly and make arrests soon. There seem to be no eyewitnesses in the case,”said Ajay Kumar, Baghpat's police chief.
