Gujarat Ex-Home Minister shot dead

News is coming in about former Gujarat State Home Minister Haren Pandya (43) being hit by five bullets fired from close range at his chest, neck and lower abdomen. The assailant, riding a motorcycle, opened fire at Pandya as he sat in his car for the drive back home after finishing his morning walk at the Law Garden locality in downtown Ahemedebad. I know this area well, and to think that this kind of violence (typical to Mumbai Mob violence) is occuring here is quite frightening. My condolences to his family.
