New Delhi: A 34-year-old man was shot dead while his brother was se­verely in­jured af­ter two snatch­ers on a bike fired at them in outer Delhi’s Narela on Thurs­day night. The bag that was tar­geted by the ac­cused con­tained ac­count pa­pers and not cash.

Po­lice of­fi­cers said that the in­ci­dent hap­pened around 9pm in Pun­jabi Colony in Narela vil­lage. Neeraj Jain (34) and his brother Ra­man Jain (33) were park­ing their mo­tor­cy­cle when two peo­ple came on a bike and tried to flee with the bag. When they re­sisted, the ac­cused shot Neeraj and drove away. A case has been reg­is­tered.

The de­ceased’s kin said that the two broth­ers ran a whole­sale con­fec­tionary store. At 8.30pm, they shut shop and went to meet a char­tered ac­coun­tant.

“Af­ter fin­ish­ing work there, they were com­ing back to their home in Pun­jabi Colony. While they were park­ing their mo­tor­cy­cle, two men wear­ing hel­mets came and tried to snatch the bag from Ra­man’s hand. A tus­sle en­sued be­tween them,” the de­ceased’s cousin Ajit Jain said, adding that Neeraj got off the mo­tor­cy­cle to nab the ac­cused.
