Police suspect old rivalry behind attack

Tension prevailed in Rajgarh block  in Churu district after Manoj Nyangali, younger brother of late BSP leader Virendra Singh Nyangali and two others were injured in a gun attack by some unidentified assailants on Sunday. The area observed a total bandh on Monday demanding the arrest of the culprits.

Elder brother murdered
