Doctor killed during robbery, mob lynches one gang-member
Police said, around six men pretending to be patients entered Doctor's nursing home on Sunday and later barged into the upper floor where the doctor lived.

Meerut: A doctor was killed allegedly by six armed men when he resisted a robbery attempt at his nursing home-cum-residence in Shahjahanpur village in the district following which angry locals lynched one of the attackers, police said on Monday.

Around six men pretending to be patients entered Dr Shamim Ahmad Khan's nursing home on Sunday and later barged into the upper floor where the doctor lived, police said. According to the in-charge of Kithaur police station, the robbers first tied up the guard and, with only the doctor and a female relative of his present in the house at the time, threatened them into handing over cash and valuables worth lakhs of rupees.

However, when the doctor put up a resistance before them, the robbers attacked him with knives, killing him on the spot. When the robbers were fleeing with jewellery and cash, police managed to nab one of them at a picket, police said. But before police could take him away, an angry mob which had gathered following the incident, caught hold of him and subjected him to severe thrashing, leading to his death.

Kithaur police said they would soon round up those involved in the robbery as they had managed to elicit relevant information regarding his associates from the nabbed gang-member, who identified himself as Amit from Muzaffarnagar, before he was attacked by the mob.
