A DJ was shot dead inside a bar, with the horrifying incident being captured on camera.

The incident happened at Xtreme Sports Bar in the early hours of May 27, 2024, in Jharkhand’s capital Ranchi.

At 1:19 am, footage showed a bare-chested man entering the bar and holding a rifle.

Meanwhile, the DJ, who has been identified as Sandeep, was looking down at his phone.

As he looks up, the pair have a brief exchange before he is shot in the chest at point-blank range.

Footage showed an injured Sandeep walking to a corner and slumping to the ground while the man exited the building.

The DJ was rushed to the hospital, however, he was declared dead on arrival.

Police arrived at the scene and launched a murder investigation.

It was reported that the murder suspect and four others had been drinking in the bar before leaving.

They returned to the bar at around 1 am and asked staff to serve them alcohol.

Staff refused to serve them due to the bar being closed. This sparked an argument between the group and the staff, including DJ Sandeep.

Ranchi Senior Superintendent of Police Chandan Kumar Sinha said:

“On being refused, a heated argument ensued between them and the bar staff.

“During the argument, one of them brought in a rifle and shot at the DJ in his chest from point-blank range.”

Despite SSP Sinha’s statement, bar operator Vishal Singh claimed the argument between staff and the group actually happened at around 10:30 pm and the gunman returned several hours later.

He said: “Yesterday at around 10:30 pm, a scuffle broke out between two groups.

“We immediately informed police and one person was arrested by police.

“After shutting the bar, we went back home but one of our staff, DJ Sandeep stayed here.”

“Later I got a call that one of our staff had been shot… We hope that the accused will be arrested soon…”

The suspect has been identified as Abhishek Singh. Police have recovered a vehicle believed to belong to Singh, who runs a local garage.

Hatia DSP Pramod Mishra said, “The accused has been identified. We are searching for him.

“He has a previous criminal record and has been to jail earlier as well. We are investigating the matter. He is a suspicious person. The deceased is a resident of Chhapra.”

Police said they will determine details of the firearm after Singh is arrested.
