FARIDABAD: The son of an exporter was shot dead outside his home in the upscale Sector 16A in Faridabad on Wednesday night, police said.

Ankit Amar, 33, had just reached home and was about to get off his car when the assailants shot him, the police said. Ankit is the son of leading henna exporter Prem Amar.

A wounded Ankit managed to reach his house and knock at the door. As his family rushed outside hearing the sound of bullet she collapsed. The family rushed Ankit to a nearby private hospital where he was declared brought dead.

The CCTV footage of the area shows three people shooting Ankit. The footage also shows Ankit reach his house and then falling to the ground.

Senior police officers, including deputy commissioner of police (NIT) PC Panwar, visited the crime scene and the hospital. Ankit’s body was handed over to his family on Thursday after post-mortem. The funeral was performed on Thursday.

The police have detained three people for questioning after the victim’s father told the police that some relatives with whom they had a property dispute could be behind the murder.

Two of them were identified as Vijay Gupta, a businessman from Noida, Vinod Gupta, a businessman from Faridabad, and an unidentified person from Faridabad Sector 14.

“We have picked up all the three persons named in the FIR and we are interrogating them,” said Hanif Qureshi, Faridabad police commissioner. “Prima facie the murder seems to be a fall out of some property dispute but we are investigating all possibilities. We are collecting CCTV footage also,” the commissioner said.
