Two youths were shot dead at Bandh village of the Israna area in the district on Monday night. Three others escaped from the spot after villagers opened fire.

The youths reportedly went to the village to threaten Dharampal, a dhaba owner, and members of his family after the registration of a criminal case against them.

Dharampal runs a dhaba near Kohand village of Gharaunda in Karnal district. He had lodged a complaint of armed loot of Rs 60,000 and two gold chains on August 14.

The Gharaunda police had registered a case against Satish of Israna village, Vikas of Bandh village and their accomplices.

Vikas and four others went to Dharampal's house on Monday night and allegedly opened fire. Residents gathered on the spot and opened fire.

Two youths were killed on the spot while Vikas and two of his accomplices fled. The deceased were identified as Satish and Manish of Israna village.

The Israna police on Tuesday registered a case against Dharampal, his wife and at least 15 others on the basis of a complaint by Manish's brother Praveen.

The village panchayat met on Tuesday and decided to support Dharampal and his family members. Led by sarpanch Gulab Singh, they went to the Mini-Secretariat.

A delegation met Superintendent of Police Manisha Chaudhary and demanded justice for those booked. She assured them of a fair inquiry into the matter.

Gulab alleged that Vikas was a notorious criminal. A police team was deployed in the village to maintain law and order. The police barricaded streets in the village.
