New Delhi: In a sus­pected gang-war case, a 22-year-old man was shot dead in outer Delhi’s Aman Vi­har by two men on a scooter, on Thurs­day night.

The vic­tim, Pushkar, had gone out for a stroll near his house in Pratap Colony, along with his dog at 10pm, when the killers came from an­other lane con­nect­ing the res­i­den­tial colony and stopped be­hind him. They called Pushkar and then fired three rounds at his leg due to which he fell on the road. He tried to hide be­hind a vegetable cart parked nearby, while his dog fled hearing the gun­shots.

The killers then got off the scooter and fired three more rounds at Pushkar from close range. Af­ter en­sur­ing that Pushkar had died, the men fled. The in­ci­dent was cap­tured on a CCTV cam­era.

Mean­while, hearing the gun­shots fam­ily mem­bers of Pushkar rushed to the spot. He was taken to a hos­pi­tal where he was de­clared dead on ar­rival. Cops are scan­ning the CCTV footage to iden­tify the ac­cused. The men were seen wear­ing hel­mets and fir­ing from a semi­au­to­matic weapon.

A prima fa­cie probe re­vealed that Pushkar was fa­mil­iar with a few mem­bers of the Nandu Gang in Na­jaf­garh. His fam­ily ear­lier stayed at Ba­hadur­garh and had re­cently shifted to Aman Vi­har. Pushkar was also sus­pected to be in­volved in the mur­der of a shop­keeper in Ba­hadur­garh re­cently. The pos­si­bil­ity of a ri­val gang tar­get­ing him for the mur­der is be­ing probed.
