The incident reportedly occurred in front of Ram Kripal near Tineri village in Masaurhi.

The police launched an investigation soon after the firing.

Criticising the incident, BJP OBC Morcha’s National General Secretary Dr. Nikhil Anand described the attack on Ram Kripal Yadav as a premeditated conspiracy, emphasising that while ideological differences are acceptable in politics, resorting to such violent measures to eliminate political opponents is utterly condemnable.
