In less than 12 hours, four cases of murder, attempted robbery and carjacking — all in public view — were reported from Delhi and Gurgaon. Two people were killed and two injured in the incidents.

In Narela in Outer Delhi, property dealer Jasbir Singh (45) died on Wednesday when he was shot at least eight times by unknown assailants, police said.

Businessman Suni Kriplani, 25, was shot at twice by two unknown assailants when he resisted a robbery bid in Karol Bagh on Wednesday.

In Jyotinagar, in northeast Delhi, Afsar, 22, was shot dead when he tried to intervene in a scuffle between two groups, police said.
