An eye witness in a case of murder and abduction of a four-year-old girl was allegedly killed here after he refused to turn hostile in the court, police said today.

Fayyaz (60), was killed by a sharp object in Khoja Nagal village of the district here yesterday.

The deceased was being pressurised by a group of men for turning hostile and not appearing in next hearing in the court, which was scheduled after a couple of days, said Deputy SP Sanjiv Vajpayee.

Police has registered a case against five men- Hussain, Tanvir, Parvez, Shakil and Shahzad, he added.

The minor girl was abducted and murdered for ransom in the district on September 7, 2011.
