The incident occurred around 9 pm when Choudhary was inside his car with two other persons who fired two shots at him.
Both the assassins walked away after killing him. Choudhary was later rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead.
Chaudhary was found in a pool of blood on the driver's seat of his car parked on the Delhi-Saharanpur Road, outside Punjab & Sind Bank in Indirapuri Colony of Loni.
The body was found hit with two gun shots – one in the temple and the other on the left side of his head, police said.
