Man dead in Outer Delhi, po­lice probe un­der­way

Hindustan Times (Delhi) - - METRO -

NEWDELHI: A 22-year-old man was killed after a group of uniden­ti­fied men fired five rounds at him in outer Delhi’s Sul­tan­pur Dabas on Satur­day af­ter­noon. The in­ci­dent took place a week after a fi­nancer, from the same vil­lage, was shot dead in his car in Ro­hini. Po­lice are prob­ing links be­tween the two deaths .

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, around 1 pm, Karan alias Monu re­ceived a call from an un­known num­ber and the caller had asked him to come to a nearby farm. Lo­cals told the po­lice that they heard gun shots and rushed to the spot where they found Monu ly­ing in­jured.“wit­nesses said they also saw a few men flee­ing in a Scorpio car. The ve­hi­cle did not have a num­ber plate. Lo­cals alerted the Monu’s fam­ily and po­lice was called. He was rushed to a Ma­har­ishi Valmiki hospi­tal where the doc­tors pro­nounced him dead,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer.

Po­lice said pre­lim­i­nary med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion re­vealed that Monu was shot from a close range. “It looks like a case of per­sonal en­mity. His valu­ables were not miss­ing. How­ever, his fam­ily mem­bers have said that he did not have a feud with any­one. CCTV footages are be­ing checked to trace the cul­prits. We are try­ing to check if the last week’s mur­der at Ro­hini has any links with Monu’s mur­der,” the of­fi­cer said.

DCP (outer-north) Gau­rav Sharma said a case of mur­der has been reg­is­tered and ef­forts to iden­tify the cul­prits are un­der­way.

Po­lice said that Monu’s fa­ther is a for­mer head of the vil­lage. Monu’s fam­ily mem­bers staged a protest with his body and blocked the roads in the area on Satur­day. The protest caused dis­rup­tion in traf­fic and po­lice per­son­nel had to be de­ployed to con­trol the un­res.
