A local Samajwadi Party leader's brother, who was missing since December 10 from his house in Sirsaganj town of Firozabad, was found murdered in a forest near Bateshwar area in Agra district on Sunday.

Giving details, the police said Nitesh's body bore gunshot injuries and his throat was also slit.

Soon after the victim's body reached Sirsaganj, locals went berserk and ransacked the house of one accused (Shankar) and torched the other's (Ankit). The mob even attacked the policemen when they reached to take control of the situation. Both the accused are absconding.
