MEERUT: In a shocking incident that left some residents of ’s Sharifpur Bhansroli village confined to their homes till the arrival of cops, a 25-year-old man, Mohd Sameer, allegedly shot and killed a barber, Irfan Ali, when the latter refused to give him and three of his brothers a haircut at home. Sameer was arrested in Bulandshahr on Thursday and all four brothers have been booked under charges of murder, which was committed using the licensed rifle of the main accused. The other three brothers are absconding.
A video of the act went viral on social media. It shows a woman running out of Irfan’s house as loud gunshots can be heard in the background. Neighbours were seen pleading with the accused to not fire. Two of the four brothers could be seen firing from the rifle while standing near the main gate, while two were on top of the terrace.
“The incident left many in shock. Those living in the same lane couldn’t gather the courage to open doors or come out of their homes until the police arrived at the spot,” said an eyewitness who does not wish to be named.
Amar Singh, the station house officer (SHO) of the Agouta police station, under whose jurisdiction the crime took place, said that the four accused first fired bullets at Irfan, who died on the spot, and then at his cousin, Imran (goes by his first name only), who received a bullet injury on his leg. He was rushed to the hospital and is now out of danger.
“We have booked all four brothers, Mohd Sameer, Mohd Shaquib, Mohd Shahid, and one other for murder and rioting,” the SHO added. The name of the fourth brother has not been mentioned in the FIR and police are trying to ascertain the same.
The senior superintendent of police (SSP) of Bulandshahr, Santosh Singh, said that Irfan and his family used to run a barbershop and also gave home salon services. The brothers had asked Irfan to give them a haircut but he refused, asking them to clear their previous dues first. “An infuriated Sameer shot Irfan and brother Imran with his rifle,” the SSP said.
