Unidentified men allegedly shot dead a 28-year-old financer, son of a Delhi Police constable,
while he was heading home from work at Outer Delhi’s Begumpur area on Thursday night. According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Vinay Singh.
Sources said that Singh could have been shot dead due to issues over settlement of some financial deals.
A senior police official said that Vinay’s father, Wajir Singh told the investigators that his son used to give money on credit to people. Three months back, he had a heated argument with someone over a sum of Rs three lakh.
According to a senior police official of the Outer district, Vinay Singh, a financer was the son of Delhi Police constable Wajir Singh who is with the 4th Battalion of the Delhi Armed Police (DAP).

Sources said that the unidentified men came and shot at Vinay from point blank range. After which, they fled from the spot, leaving Vinay writhing in pain.
A passer-by saw Vinay lying in a pool of blood and informed the police. A team of local police rushed Vinay to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead. Police, meanwhile, said that they have registered a case of murder under relevant sections of the IPC at the Begumpur police station against unknown persons.
Police said that they are yet to ascertain the exact motive behind the murder. In the preliminary investigation, it appears that Vinay was killed over settlement issues pertaining to a financial deal. Further investigation in the matter is on.
Sources said that Vinay is survived by his wife and one month old daughter. He was the only son of Wajir. Police have sent the body for postmortem and initiated investigations into the matter.
