Police arrested two persons and detained one for questioning in connection with the murder of a 24-year-old man in a market in southeast Delhi’s Ambedkar Nagar area Tuesday evening. The victim, Gaurav Sood, was assaulted and shot outside a meat shop. The crime was captured by CCTV cameras, which showed people watching without intervening.
DCP (southeast) Romil Baaniya said the accused, Shivam and Johnson, were arrested Friday. “One more person has been detained. The reason for the murder will come out once we arrest all the accused persons,” he added.
Police are looking into information that Sood, who worked as a volunteer at a drug de-addiction centre in Jaitpur, had a dispute with one of the accused, who had tried to kill him twice earlier.
The victim’s father, Sanjeev Sood, had said his son was beaten up by four persons in front of people but nobody came to his aid.
