The victim, identified as Swapnil alias Sajra Shinde (32), a resident of Rase village in Khed taluka, sustained a gunshot wound to the head after one of the three individuals who arrived at the hotel opened fire. The assailants fired three shots at the hotel operator, resulting in a bullet grazing the victim’s head.
