Sachin’s friends told the police that two men, riding an Avenger motorcycle, entered the area and stopped their motorbike at some distance. They waived at Sachin and asked him to come close to them.
The property dealer, who was totally unaware of their motive, started moving towards them and as he reached closer was shot thrice in his chest. As Sachin fell on the road all drenched in blood, the gunmen fired few shots in the air and fled the scene.
The friends of the deceased man immediately informed the police and his family members about him being shot in Banglabazar. Sachin’s family members rushed him to the nearby civil hospital from where he was referred to the trauma centre as he was bleeding profusely. He was declared brought dead by the doctors at the trauma centre.
