An armed robber shot dead a petrol pump owner in Begusarai in Bihar last Friday. 

Lakshmi Narayan (32), the owner of Surya Shivam petrol pump, tried to resist the robbery, but was tragically shot dead.

 

The incident was caught on a CCTV camera at the pump located at Hardia on Begusarai-Rosera state highway. 

It shows Lakshmi Narayan, a resident of Patna, working at his desk when an armed robber barges in. Lakshmi Narayan fights back ferociously and tries to push out the intruder. 

It is a mark of his bravery that Lakshmi Narayan continued to resist even after he was shot with a country pistol. The fight ends only after he slumps and falls on the floor. 

The miscreant escaped with just Rs 5,000 and  the police are looking at other possible motives as well for the murder.  

Several petrol pumps in Begusarai have come under attack in the last fortnight, reports The Times of India.

Last Tuesday, a worker of a petrol pump under Lakho police outpost, was shot by motorcycle-borne criminals. 

On May 13, criminals had looted a petrol pump at Sahebpurkamal under the same police station area.
