An auto rickshaw driver was shot dead by unidentified gunmen at Zion Hospital Road near Labour Office Thursday around 1:57 p.m. Police said the auto driver identified as Kahoi Sumi of Saghemi village, a resident of Model colony, Purana Bazaar, was proceeding towards town in his auto rickshaw when the gunmen dragged him out of the auto and shot him six times at point blank range. The victim died on the spot. Police said the killing might be one of mistaken identity as a family member told police that deceased had a twin brother serving in the NSCN (I-M). Police recovered six empty cases of AK-47 from the spot. The body was later handed over to relatives.
