A dramatic video has captured police shooting dead a stone-pelting Dera Sacha Saudha member. 

The man, supporter of disgraced guru Gurpreet Ram Rahim, is seen throwing a stone at the advancing police personnel in Panchkula Haryana on Friday. 

The next moment he falls on the ground dead after taking a bullet aimed at him by the police. 

The man and thousands of others were protesting against the verdict of a CBI court which held Gurpreet Ram Rahim guilty of a rape charge.  

Several cities in North India burned following his conviction as his supporters resorted to largescale vandalism in anger.   

At least 32 protesters died and over 250 were injured by the bullets fired by the police to control the rampaging mobs.

Dr Sunil Gambhir a senior doctor at the Panchkula Civil Hospital, which carried out the autopsy of the dead said, the cause of death in all the cases was gun-shot injuries in the upper part of the body. 

“All these were immediate deaths; expect one, who was operated at PGIMER,” he told The Hindustan Times.
