NEW DELHI: A 32-year-old prop­erty dealer was gunned down by three bike-borne as­sailants, while he was wait­ing in his Wagon R car at a traf­fic sig­nal in south­west Delhi’s Dwarka Sec­tor-23 on Wed­nes­day evening.

At least half-a-dozen bul­lets were fired at the car, four of which hit the prop­erty dealer, killing him on the spot.

Po­lice said the mur­der was a fall­out of a ‘gang war’ in Bi­har’s Si­wan district be­tween two sus­pected gang­sters, one led by a crim­i­nal-turned-politi­cian who is lodged in a Delhi prison.

The prop­erty dealer, iden­ti­fied as Feroz Ali, was pur­port- edly work­ing for the jailed gang­ster-turned politi­cian.

The ri­val gang­ster, Ra­hees Khan, too is lodged in a jail in Bi­har, said po­lice.

Two of the at­tack­ers were chased and caught by seven po­lice­men, in­clud­ing three traf- fic per­son­nel, de­ployed at an in­te­grated po­lice picket in Dwarka Sec­tor-21 with the help of lo­cal peo­ple. The third sus­pect man­aged to flee with the prop­erty dealer’s car.

“The two ar­rested men were iden­ti­fied as Sabir Hus­sain and Amzad Ali, both from Bi­har. A mur­der case was reg­is­tered against them,” said Santosh Ku­mar Meena, ad­di­tional DCP (Dwarka). Two pis­tols were seized from them.

A po­lice of­fi­cer as­so­ci­ated with the case said the at­tack­ers were ‘hit­men’ hired by Ra­hees Khan to kill Feroz.

“The ar­rested duo has told us that they were paid Rs 1 lakh each by Ra­hees’s aide for the con­tract killing. They had come to Delhi only to ex­e­cute the killing of Feroz,” said the of­fi­cer.

He added that the third at­tacker who fled in Feroz’s car has been iden­ti­fied as San­jay.

Dur­ing in­ter­ro­ga­tion, the of­fi­cer said, the two men re­vealed that they were ap­proached by San­jay i n Bi­har’s Si­wan with the mur­der plan. The two joined in the plan af­ter San­jay of­fered to pay them Rs 1 lakh each for killing Feroz.

The three then came to Delhi in a train two days ago and started track­ing Feroz’s move­ments and his daily rou­tine, the of­fi­cer said.

“A con­tact of Ra­hees pro­vided the men a mo­tor­cy­cle and firearms. The three tailed Feroz for al­most two kilo­me­ters and opened fire at him the mo­ment he stopped his car at the traf­fic sig­nal,” the of­fi­cer said. Feroz came out of the car and col­lapsed on the road. San­jay drove away with his car.

“Feroz too had crim­i­nal cases against him in Bi­har,” said the ad­di­tional DCP.
