Former Delhi MLA Bharat Singh shot dead
Monday March 30, 2015 9:00 AM, IANS

Former Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) legislator Bharat Singh was shot at by unidentified gunmen here during a religious programme on Sunday evening, and succumbed to his injuries in a hospital, police said.

The 38-year-old Bharat Singh and two of his aides were injured when they were shot at around 8.10 p.m. while attending the programme at Abhinandan Vatika in west Delhi's Najafgarh from where he was elected as a legislator in 2009.

Around 8-10 unidentified people indiscriminately fired over 15 rounds at them, police said.

All the injured were taken to Medanta the Medicity hospital in Gurgaon. Bharat Singh, who received more than two bullets, died during treatment.

His aides are in critical condition, said a police official.

"Prima facie, it seems to be a case of personal enmity," he said.

This was the second attack on Bharat Singh after June 2012 when four people were arrested for shooting him near his office.

He had then luckily survived after receiving two bullet injuries, one in his left shoulder and another in his abdomen.

Bharat Singh is the younger brother of Kishen Pehalwan, who has more than two dozen criminal cases registered against him, police said.
