They said the arrested men have been identified as Pushpendra Rathi, Jaiprakash alias J P, Rahul Tiwari and Yogesh Yadav. Pushpendra was arrested from Sector 92 in Gurgaon while the other three accused were held from Farrukhnagar, added the police.

Subhash Boken, a spokesperson of the Gurgaon police, said, “The probe has found that Pushpendra has taken the security contract of the warehouse where the victim Jeevan Lal works as a caretaker. Jeevan Lal used to complain to Pushpendra about the lack of security personnel in the warehouse, due to which there had been fights between them. Due to this enmity, Pushpendra along with his associates planned to kidnap the caretaker and they beat him up.”

Two vehicles and a stick used in the crime have been recovered from the accused, according to officials. The accused were produced in a district court and sent to judicial custody, they added.
