Toll plaza attendant shot dead in Gurgaon

A young attendant at a Toll plaza here was shot dead by passengers in a car a little past midnight when he asked for the toll fee of Rs. 27 from them, police said Friday.

According to Gurgaon Police Commissioner S. S. Deswal, 22-year-old attendant Umesh Kumar Pandey had asked for the toll tax from the car owners at around 12:30 am at Kheri Daula.
