A man was shot in broad daylight in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh, on Monday while walking with his little daughter on his shoulders, police said. He’s in critical condition, but his daughter wasn’t hurt, they added.

The police said that two persons have been arrested in the case. The victim, Shoaib (30), was visiting his family home near Shahjahanpur when he was attacked.
The police said that Gufran (22) and Nadeem (20) are the accused in the case, and the bike has been recovered. Special teams are being formed to trace the third accused, Tariq, said senior police official Ashok Meena.
