Biryani shop owner shot dead in Bengal after seeking payment for a meal, Mohammad Firoz arrested

A Biryani shop owner in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas region was shot dead after he sought payment for the meals served to his diners, IANS has reported. As per the report, the owner – a 40-year-old Sanjay Mondal was killed on Sunday evening, after he charged Rs 190 for the Biryani which the accused had ordered. The incident happened at about 9 PM on Sunday.

As per a Hindustan Times report, an altercation began after the accused received the bill for their takeaway order, and grumbled that they were being overcharged. The report then claimed that the restaurant owner asked them to clear previous standing dues of Rs 190 for a Biryani they had incurred a few days ago. This didn’t please the accused and one of them named Mohammad Firoz used his pistol to shoot Mondal.

A Zee News report states that Mondal was then rushed to a nearby hospital but was pronounced dead. An FIR was then lodged regarding the matter, following which, Firoz was arrested. The police are claiming that prima facie the dispute seemed to pertain to Biryani but they are investigating other possible motives.

The brother of the deceased has been quoted as calling the accused as hooligans. He claimed that it was Firoz who pulled the trigger and identified others accompanying him as Salman, Mogri and Raja. He also expressed that he was very scared and was at a loss for ways to run his business peacefully.

This isn’t the only time humble individuals have been targeted for frivolous reasons.

We had reported in the past how an IRCTC employee was battling for his life following a brutal assault by two Rajdhani express passengers. It was reported that the victim named Sushanta Behera earned the ire of the passengers after an ice-cream carton accidentally brushed against an accused.

The accused were later identified as Mohammed Zaid and M Quraishi who hailed from Kolkata.
