A 40-year-old property dealer died after he was shot at a party in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur district, police said on Monday.

The incident took place on Sunday evening when Rakesh Singh was shot at a party hosted by his friend Ajay Raj Singh, who is also a property dealer, they said.

Ajay Raj rushed Rakesh to BRD Medical college where doctors referred him to a Lucknow hospital. Rakesh died before he could be taken to Lucknow, police said.

On the basis of a complaint filed by Rakesh's nephew Abhishek Pratap, police have registered a case of murder against two suspects, Pravin Pandey and Vivek Pandey of Rapti Nagar, said Shahpur SHO Sudhir Singh.
