A 50-year-old man was shot dead, allegedly by his neighbour, over a parking dispute in Alipur, Outer Delhi, around 9.30 pm on Friday.
The man who died, Rajveer Rana, was in his house when his neighbour Prem Rana (58) tried to park his car, police said. Prem’s house is opposite Rajveer’s house.
According to police, construction work had been going on in Rajveer’s house, due to which some material was lying outside the house. Police said this prevented Prem from parking at his usual spot.
A quarrel broke out, during which they allegedly traded blows.
It is alleged that Prem asked his two sons to assault Rajveer, after the quarrel.
Police said the two sons came with a pistol and allegedly fired at Rajveer, injuring him in the process. He was rushed to the nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Doctors told police that Rajveer had sustained three bullet injuries in his chest and stomach.
Police have registered a case of murder against the three and have formed several teams to nab the accused.
Rajveer worked as a real estate agent.
Prem is also a real estate agent, while his two sons run a steel factory.
Additional Commissioner of Police (Outer) Sanjay Kumar said police were on the lookout for the accused. “Prem and his two sons are accused in this case. Prima facie, it appears that the pistol used in the commission of crime was a licensed one. We are looking into the case,” a senior police officer said.
In a separate case of road rage on February 28, two brothers had been shot dead by several persons over a parking dispute in Sultanpur Dabas village, Bawana.
