The blood-soaked body of a 35-year-old share broker was recovered metres away from his office in northwest Delhi's Rohini on Monday morning, police said.
Ravi Goel, who had left his house on Sunday night — apparently to watch a cricket match with his friends, was found lying in a pool of blood by his wife after she went looking for him outside his KN Katju Marg office in Rohini sector 17. "The victim's wife informed us about the incident early on Monday morning. Goel was rushed to a hospital where doctors declared him dead and attributed it to a bullet lodged in his skull," said a senior police officer.
According to his family, Goel had decided to watch the match at his shop since the channel broadcasting it wasn't available at his residence, located less than half a kilometre away from his office. Police sources, however, said Goel was also a local bookie and might have been gunned-down due to a dispute emanating from cricket betting.
"His connection with betting seems to be the most plausible reason behind the incident since it was not supposed to be a robbery," he added.
A case of murder has been registered at the KN Katju Marg Police Station.
