The BJP leader was rushed to a nearby hospital but died on the way.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Rampur councillor's husband Anurag Sharma has been shot dead in Aghapur area in Uttar Pradesh.

According to reports, Sharma had a criminal background and several cases were registered against him. His supporters vandalized the district hospital requiring more force to be deployed.

His wife Shalini Sharma is a BJP councilor in Rampur.
