A teacher with a municipal corporation-run primary school in northwest Delhi was shot dead by some unidentified criminals on Monday.
The deceased has been identified as 31-year-old Deepak. Police said he had joined the school as an ad-hoc teacher earlier this year.
According to police, Deepak was found lying in pool of blood near the gate of the primary school in Swaroop Nagar around 5 pm. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead.
Police said in their initial investigation they have learnt that the teacher’s killers were known to him. “The CCTV footage shows that the murderers came to school in a car. They called the teacher and shot him from a point blank range,” said Milind Dumbree, deputy commissioner of police northwest Delhi.
The Delhi Police have formed a team to nab the criminals.
