The Delhi Police have arrested a man who had hired killers to eliminate his younger brother. He believed that his family preferred his brother over him. On May 10, the victim, Shahdab was found killed near Ambedkar College in east Delhi. He owned a factory. The two hired killers have also been arrested.

Arshad, the brother of the deceased and two contract killers, Adil and Sajjad, have been arrested.

"Arshad was jealous of his younger brother as he used to get a more preferential and favourable treatment. So he decided to murder Shahbad. Their father had been taking more interest in Shahbad's business. Shahdab was prosperous and his factory was running well, while Arshad's business was a failure," Sanjay Jain, DCP (northeast) said.
