Azamgarh, Uttar Pradesh (The Hawk): The headmaster of a school in the Jiyanpur Kotwali neighbourhood of the Azamgarh district was killed by bike-borne assailants.

Near a brick kiln, the attackers shot Yadav and then ran away.

Locals working in a nearby field raised the alarm after hearing the gunfire. The headmaster was sent to a private trauma centre in the city, where he was receiving treatment when he passed away from his wounds.
