Victim Rajesh Malik, around 35 years of age, was working as an ad-hoc Lecturer in Kharkhoda. The identity of the assailant, who fled after committing the ghastly crime, was being ascertained by police.
Eyewitnesses said the assailant fired 3-4 shots at the teacher, with one hitting him in the chest. Malik succumbed to the gunshot wound later.
In January, a Class 12 student of a private school in Yamunanagar town allegedly shot dead his school Principal with his father's licensed revolver.
He was upset over his rustication from school.
