Police said Siraj, 35, was going to his hometown along with his companion on a motorcycle when three men, who were also riding a motorcycle and had been following them, intercepted them near the Jamali Flyover and shot him thrice when he resisted their bid to snatch over Rs70,000 from him. The robbers escaped without looting the case. Sachal police are investigating.
