Some of the worshipers were killed in the attack.

At least two persons were shot dead while another sustained injury during the attack.

He was suspected to be the prime target of the assailants.

A source who described the deceased as a businessman, politician and large scale farmer, said the victim was killed when he refused to take orders from his murderers.
