Lawyer Father and Son Gunned Down En Route to Court in Chapra

In a heartrending incident in Chapra, Bihar, a lawyer and his son were fatally shot by criminals in an apparent ambush while they were on their way to court on Wednesday morning. The victims, identified as Ram Ayodhya Rai, 55, and his son Sunil Kumar Rai, were traveling together on a motorcycle when they were attacked by five assailants who had been lying in wait.

The shooting took place near the Dudhiya Bridge in the Mufassil Police Station area. As the father and son duo approached the location, the assailants opened fire, leading to immediate fatal injuries for both. The deceased were residents of Methavalia village and were reportedly involved in a family dispute over 4 bighas (approximately 1.6 acres) of land, which police believe could be the motive behind the attack.

Following the incident, the injured were rushed to the Sadar Hospital, where they were declared dead by the attending doctors. The legal community in Chapra has reacted with shock and anger, with many lawyers ceasing work in protest of the violent act, which has disrupted the regular court proceedings and forced many to return home.

Authorities have reportedly arrested two suspects in connection with the killings as investigations continue.
