Two held for bizman's murder in Ashok Vihar
NEW DELHI: Two men who had shot dead a businessman who tried to save himself from them and resist their robbery bid have been arrested by Delhi Police.
On August 22, after Sanjeev Gajwani resisted the attempted robbery near his residence in Ashok Vihar by Dalip Singh and Sanjay, the accused shot him in the neck, killing him.
Two other culprits in the case are still absconding.
The accused fled with his bag containing Rs 50,000. Their source, however, had told them he would be carrying Rs 4-5 lakh.
During investigation, cops came to know that one of the two had escaped on a white motorcycle, which proved to be a vital clue. Eventually, the two were arrested by Delhi Police on September 17.
"The white bike was a Yamaha R15. Accordingly, details of all white Yamaha R15 motorbikes was obtained from the Transport Authority offices and details of around 2,000 such motorbikes were obtained. A special drive was launched for verification of such bikes," said DCP (North West) Milind Dumbere.
On the night of incident, all the four accused persons had followed Gajwani from his place of work in Shastri Nagar on two motorcycles, while the businessman was on his scooty.
As soon as Gajwani parked his vehicle outside his house in Ashok Vihar, Phase-II, one of the accused threatened him and snatched his bag. When Gajwani resisted, they shot him in the neck.
