Ghazipur (UP): A Bhojpuri folk singer was among two persons who were shot dead in Tiyari village area here, police said on Saturday.

Singer Sunita Tyagi (35) and Ramjit Yadav (42) were shot dead here last evening allegedly over an old enmity.

The shooting appears to be a fallout of a murder case five years ago in which Yadav was an accused and served in jail, they said.

An FIR has been registered by Yadav's brother against three persons in this regard, he added.
