NOIDA: A 45-year old man businessman was shot dead, while his friend was critically injured, when they were attacked by four miscreants for resisting a robbery attempt in Sector-71 in Noida in the early hours of Sunday.
"The victims, Shri Niwas and Vicky Gupta, used to supply polythene to the local market.
"On Saturday night, they were returning home after collecting money from the market. Around 2 am, they were intercepted by robbers, who tried to snatch away their bag containing cash. On resisting the attempt, they shot and fatally injured them," said Arun Kumar Singh, Superintendent of Police, Noida.

"Vikas is undergoing treatment at the hospital," added Singh.
