A BJP leader and his security guard were shot dead by attackers on a bike in Greater Noida near Delhi this evening. Shiv Kumar Yadav was in his Toyota Fortuner car when the bikers reportedly drove up and fired shots at the car in the Bisrakh area. The BJP leader died instantly.

A girl who was hit by the car as it crashed by the side of the road also died from her injuries, news agency ANI said.
