The killing of a criminal Kuldeep Jaghina, who had murdered a BJP worker last year, inside a bus in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, is giving sleepless nights to other passengers.

One of the passengers, Manoj Kumar present inside the bus at the time of the attack which happened on Wednesday, said that he had reached Jaipur from Gujarat and was going to Bharatpur when around five people barged into the bus and started shooting.
“Passengers were seen screaming. As I tried to see what was happening, I received a bullet and I felt I was about to die,” he said.
Manoj was one among those who sustained injuries in the attack and is now stable.
“The miscreants fled away after shooting. I was left trembling,” said Manoj, who was later rushed to the hospital.
The assailants on Wednesday killed gangster Kuldeep Jaghina after firing 15 rounds in the bus and fled within five minutes after killing him.
Police officials said that four accused have been arrested, said Superintendent of Police Mridul Kachhawa
