Noida: A 21-year-old student of an Amity University was allegedly shot dead at his house in Noida on Saturday allegedly by one of his friends, who was also studying at the same university. The deceased boy, who has been identified as Rama Raju Sandesh, died on the spot.

Sandesh, who hails from Andhra Pradesh, was the second year student of B.Sc Marine Sciences. Aman, the accused, was a student of Tourism.

The incident took place around 3:30pm on Saturday when some people rand the doorbell of Sandesh's flat. Police said he opened the door and the attackers shot him and fled the spot.

Police said that Sandesh was staying at Lotus Boulevard society with his two more friends -- Madhur and Nadeem -- who are students of the same university. On Saturday, when he was at his residence, somebody came to the door. His friends said they heard him scream ‘Aman, don’t kill me’ and then they heard two gun shots. They saw two persons fleeing the spot,” said Vijay Dhull, assistant superintendent of police, Noida.

Police said there are no CCTV cameras installed in the society where Sandesh was living.
