Rohtak -, Dec 21 - A notorious criminal was gunned down, apparently by his rivals, in Haryana's Bahadurgarh town in Jhajjar district Friday, police said.

Himmat Singh -, who was involved in over 15 criminal cases, including those of murder and kidnapping, was gunned down on National Highway No.10 in Bahadurgarh, 35 km from Delhi, while he was returning from a court.

Police said an old rivalry appears to be the cause behind Singh's murder.

Himmat Singh had a criminal history and was accused in 15 cases of crimes like murder, attempt to murder, kidnapping and robbery. An old rivalry could be the cause of the murder, Jhajjar district police chief Anil Dhawan said.

Police said Singh's car was hit by another car coming from the opposite direction. When he got out of his car, he saw five men sitting in the other car and started running. However, he was chased and shot dead, a police official said.

The assailants fled from the spot, leaving their car behind.

The police have registered a case against 16 people on the basis of a complaint filed by Singh's brother.
