A 30-year-old labourer was today shot dead in Madhya Pradesh's Datia district allegedly by five people over a previous enmity, police said. The incident took place in Hinotia village in the morning today when the victim, Mukesh Yadav, had gone to answer nature's call, said Datia superintendent of police Mayank Awasthi. "The five miscreants, who had a previous enmity with Yadav, shot him in the head from close range and escaped. He died on the spot," Awasthi told newspersons here. He identified the accused as Dinesh Gautam, Madan Gautam, Sunil Gautam, Gopal Gautam and Jagdish Gautam, adding that all five belonged to Hinotia village. The SP said that the accused, a few days ago, had brandished weapons and fired in the air outside Yadav's house in a bid to scare his family.
