Rajesh Mishra was attacked in Ghazipur district, about 338 km southeast of Lucknow city, the capital city of Uttar Pradesh.

In a sensational daylight shoot-out in Uttar Pradesh's Gazipur district, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker-cum- journalist Rajesh Mishra was on Saturday shot dead by three motorcycle-borne assailants, who also wounded his brother, police said. The attack took place when Mishra and his brother were sitting in their building material shop in Brahmanpura Chatti this morning, circle officer Hridayanad Singh said.

"Of the three assailants, two have been identified, and soon all of of them will be arrested", he added.

Family members and colleagues believe the murder could be due to Rajesh Mishra's RSS background or journalistic work.

RSS workers's murder: Resident of Brahminpur village, Rajesh also runs building material shop near his house. "His younger brother whose condition is critical has been referrrd to Varanasi for treatment".

On Tuesday a local level leader of RSS was shot dead in Punjab.

Taking cognizance of the matter, Punjab government on Thursday chose to hand over the case to National Investigation Agency (NIA).
