A shocking incident has surfaced from Jharkhand, where a DJ was fatally shot over a minor issue in Ranchi. A video of the horrifying incident has circulated widely on social media.

In the viral clip, a man with a gun shot the DJ, later identified as Sandeep, also known as Sandy, during a small argument at a bar in Ranchi. The video shows DJ Sandy taking a few steps before falling to the ground after being shot.

On the night of May 26, a 30-year-old disc jockey (DJ) was shot dead at a bar in Ranchi, Jharkhand, by a man carrying what appeared to be a sophisticated rifle.

The police arrested the accused, identified as Abhishek Singh, from Gaya in Bihar on Monday. The victim, Sandip Pramanik, a resident of West Bengal, worked at the bar. CCTV footage of the incident shows a man, with his face covered, shooting the DJ with a rifle from point-blank range.

According to Ranchi Senior Superintendent of Police Chandan Kumar Sinha, “The accused has been arrested within 15 hours of the incident. The suspect, Abhishek Singh alias Vicky, a resident of Ranchi, has been apprehended. We have also formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to look into the case. The police are currently questioning three individuals in connection with the incident.”

Sinha mentioned that following the incident, the police launched an investigation. During the investigation, it was discovered that Singh had fled to Gaya, leading to his arrest by the Bihar police in the Alipur area.

Sinha explained that the accused was intoxicated at the time of the crime. “He appears alone in the video footage. It remains to be determined whether he acted alone or if others were involved,” added the SSP.

Further explaining, Sinha said, “The incident occurred around midnight. When the police arrived at the scene, there were no witnesses, making it a challenging case. However, we formed seven teams, and with technical assistance and initial inquiries, we began to unravel the details of the incident.”

According to a statement from the Gaya police, “Following a request from the Ranchi SSP for assistance in apprehending the suspect, Gaya Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Ashish Bharti instructed all sub-divisional police officers and station heads to conduct special vehicle checks throughout the district. Consequently, a special team was formed to arrest the accused.”
