In a high profile crime incident, a real estate dealer was shot in Kolkata.
The incident took place as he was showing potential clients some apartments for sale in an under-construction building.
Police said that the incident took place in the South Dum Dum civic area.
Incidentally, it was pointed out in the local media that the spot is not far from Nagerbazar where a bomb blast on October 2 killed an eight year old boy.
Real estate dealer Shekhar Poddar was showing the group of clients a four-storey under construction building around 11 am when two motorcycle-borne men shot at him.
The police say they are investigating who the attackers were but locals suspect it is the fallout of syndicate raj.
The local Trinamool Congress MLA Sujit Bose named two people and claimed BJP supporters were behind the firing.>
