Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh) [India], September 2 (ANI): A Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Gajendra Bhati was shot at by criminals in Ghaziabad's Khora Colony on Saturday.

The law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh had been of much concern, under both former Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and current Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. (ANI)
