DJ Shot dead

Posted at June 24th, 2015 | by Sidhantha Jain | in

22nd June 2015, Monday, 30-year-old Indian DJ Arun Valmiki was shot dead at a private party by one of the guests, Ashu (alias Ishu) for not playing the popular Bollywood track, “Tamanchey pe disco” on demand. After experiencing fatal gun wounds in chest, sole breadwinner of his wife and two children, Valmiki was rushed to the community health center nearby in the Sidhauli village (Meerganj area) of Uttar Pradesh where the bitter event took place. The music enthusiast was soon declared dead by doctors. Following the incident, the police took charge and arrived at Ishu’s residence, but by then he had already vanished.
 

It’s hard to believe that the failure to play a song could result in gun fire at a young girl’s birthday celebration. Who knew that a career in party entertainment could turn into such a life threatening profession?
