4 nabbed for businessman murder

Four people have been arrested for the murder of a Delhi businessman who was killed on January 9 and robbed off Rs 8 lakh, police said on Sunday.

The whole incident surrounding the killing of Nikhil Agarwal, a Pitampura based sim-card dealer was recorded in a CCTV camera installed inside his office and that went viral through smart-phone applications.

The footage clearly showed the faces of two men with country-made pistols. During investigation, it emerged that the other gang members were waiting outside Agarwal’s office. A cash reward of two lakh rupees was announced by the police for the arrest of the four – Mohammed Sonu, Adil Khan, Amit Kumar and Shahzad.

Adil’s face was recognised by an informer who had watched the footage and on February 21, he was arrested. Adil told the police that it was Sonu who had hatched the plan. Sonu was a scrap dealer and had his shop near the victim’s office, said N Gnana Sambandan, Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-West)

Sonu was arrested on February 24. During interrogation, he told the police that he wanted to earn fast money so he targeted Nikhil Agarwal. Sonu killed the victim only when he tried to raise an alarm. But they spared Yadram, who worked at Agarwal’s office and was present during the incident. Yadram called up the police and reported the matter on January 9.

To execute his plan, Sonu summoned Shahzad, a Loni-based gangster for carrying out the plan.
The other accused, Amit Kumar, was out on bail and agreed to be a part of the plan.
On February 28, Shahzad was the next to be arrested and later it emerged that the other accused, Amit Kumar, had deliberately got his surety canceled and lodged himself in jail to escape the probe. The police also recovered the country-made pistol, with which the crime was committed, from their possession.
