He sustained gunshot wounds and died after reaching the nearest hospital. The accused will be sent to judicial custody,” said DCP Greater Noida, Amit Kumar.
According to officials, post 1 am in the early hours of Saturday, accused Aakash and Yogendra came to the joint and asked for parathas. The two have been regular customers of the same restaurant for the past three years, police said.
Kapil told the accused that the restaurant is shut and they would not be able to provide them food. The accused had a heated argument following which they left.
Around 3.30 am, they came back to SR Foods with a gun and forced their way into the place. The accused then allegedly shot Kapil and fled from the spot. The victim died during treatment, police said.
An FIR was filed against the accused under IPC sections 302 (murder), 34 (common intention) at Beta 2 police station.
