The eastern region of Uttar Pradesh, Purvanchal, is known for its limited resources, porous international border, and history of violence. In this series we start with an expert breakdown of how men become shooters in this ecosystem of crime in UP. From recruitment, to gaining power and reputation, to murder for hire, and eventually police encounters, we find out everything you need to know through interviews with police officials, crime reporters, and even shooters themselves.
This is ‘Sh for Shooter’ – the first episode of ‘C for Crime’, the VICE India guide to crime in India.
