Mumbai, Jan 29 : A Shiv Sena candidate for a civic body election to be held this week was Monday shot dead by unidentified assailants in Thane, police said.

Ashok Bhoyar was shot in the satellite township of this metropolis while he was in his car that was stationary. He died within minutes, police said.

The assailants, whose number could not be ascertained, fled the spot before anybody could identify them.

Preliminary investigations suggested that the murder was not connected with politics, police said.

Bhoyar, a Shiv Sena candidate for the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) elections to be held Feb 1, had contested a previous TMC poll on the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ticket.
