“Awanish Sharma was shot by Gaurav Sharma and his friends,” said SP Hathras Vineet Jaiswal, “he was grievously injured and died on the way to hospital.”
In 2018, Awanish Sharma had lodged a complaint of molestation with his daughter to the police station against the accused. Angered by this, the accused Gaurav Sharma and his friends went to the farm and shot him dead late in the evening.
When Awanish Sharma’s daughter reached the hospital, she was shocked to see that her father had died. In tears before the media, his daughter begged for justice. “Please give me justice,” she said with folded hands. “First he molested me. My father filed a case. And he shot my father out of annoyance,” she said.
