The incident took place at a bus stand, where the buses were parked for the night. Nobody was hurt, investigating officer and head constable Hukma Ram said. A hunt was on to nab the accused who are yet to be identified, he added.

Nagaur district has been tense since 24 June when gangster Anandpal Singh, on the run since September 2015, was gunned down by the police in Malasar village in Churu.

The gangster's family, backed by the Rajput community, is yet to cremate the body. They are demanding a CBI inquiry into the encounter and permission for Anandpal Singh's brothers, who are in judicial custody, to attend the funeral.

The SP of Nagaur said the body was kept in a deep freezer at his house where elaborate security arrangement was made. Police were allowing people to enter the village only after verifying their identity.

The Rajasthan government has offered a SIT probe but Anandpal's family is sticking to its demands. The Rajput community is organising a 'shrandhanjali' rally in the slain gangster's native village Sanvrad today.
