Muzaffarnagar, Jan 12: A witness in the self-styled godman Asaram Bapu's rape case was shot dead in Muzaffarnagar in northern Uttar Pradesh.

"The witness, Akhil Gupta, was travelling home on his scooter when two people on a motorcycle overtook him and shot him dead. Investigations are still on," SSP Harinarayan Singh told the media.
