Ggn shop owner kills employee for demanding salary dues

Gurugram: A trader allegedly murdered his employee on Saturday in Gurugram when the latter demanded the payment of his salary dues. The accused had allegedly not paid his employee's salary for three months. The deceased has been identified as Roshan. The accused owns a fruit and vegetable shop in Sector 57 of Gurugram's Rail Vihar.

The Gurugram Sector 56 police have registered an FIR under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

The 20-year-old had been working at the accused's shop for a salary of Rs 15,000.

Roshan wanted his outstanding salary as he wanted to go back to his family to help them.

Manoj Kumar Swami, elder brother of the deceased, who works as a labourer, said his brother moved to Gurugram as the family was facing a financial crisis after their father's death.

"Our father died a few years ago. Our elder brother also died 10 months ago, due to which we were facing difficulties to make ends meets. I joined a contractor and am working in Sikar. Roshan came to Gurugram and started working as a salesman at a vegetable shop in Sector 57 for Rs 15,000 a month," he said.

Roshan had recently completed his class 12 and got married last year. His wife lived with his family in Sikar. The police said that on Saturday night, Roshan went to the accused and asked for his salary. Following this, the two got into an argument. When the argument escalated, the accused allegedly stabbed him and slit his throat.

"To prevent him from leaving the place, the accused put the victim on a chair and tied him up. The accused is absconding. The police is conducting the raids to get hold of the culprit," said Subash Bokan the spokesperson of Gurugram police.
