Internet service was suspended for 48 hours in Bhilwara city after a Muslim man was shot dead and his brother injured in the same attack, police said on Thursday.
According to the police, four bike-borne assailants opened fire on the brothers to avenge the murder of Adarsh Tapadia six months ago.
Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Hawa Singh Ghumaria said additional police force has been deployed in the city as a precautionary measure, while it is being said that mobs had gathered at various places.
Police said the family members of the victims and their supporters ransacked the hospital after one of the attack victims died during treatment.
His injured brother has been referred to Udaipur for treatment.
Hawa Singh said that the SP of the district and his team are monitoring the security arrangements in the area.
He said that the Inspector General of Ajmer Range is being sent to Bhilwara and the situation in the city is completely under control.
Police force has been deployed at many places including Mahatma Gandhi Chauraha, Badla Chauraha, Bhimganj, CT Kotwali in the city. The attackers are being searched.
Additional Superintendent of Police Jyestha Maitreyi said that after noon four unidentified people riding two bikes surrounded Ibrahim Pathan alias Bhura (34) and Kamaruddin alias Tony (22) at Badla intersection and fired three rounds. Ibrahim died during treatment.
Preliminary investigation revealed that these people were shot to avenge the killing of Adarsh Tapadia.
In May this year, Tapadia was stabbed to death in a clash between two groups in the city over an old enmity.
Following her murder, Bhilwara was gripped by fears of communal violence even as the police arrested three minors as well as half a dozen others.
The city was then sealed off on appeal from Hindu organisations.
