The Gurgaon police on Friday claimed to have arrested three accused involved in the murder of a cashier at a gas agency godown at Rajendra Park on Tuesday evening.

The accused were previously involved in murder and vehicle thefts, police said.

Acting on a tip-off, police searched a hideout in Rajendra Park area and arrested the three men identified as Ravinder alias Ravi of Rewari district, Vishnu of Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, and Sandeep alias Sunny alias Maane of Rewari.

The victim, Raju alias Arvind, worked at the godown and collected the daily sale of around Rs 60,000 to 70,000 before leaving the premises, police said.

The three accused had been planning the robbery for a week. They gathered information about the godown and the mastermind was Ravinder, police said.

Police said Rs 30,000 was robbed of Raju and he was shot in the leg. Raju later succumbed to injuries.

The godown is located in a secluded area near Daultabad flyover and Dwarka Expressway. The trio reached there around 5:30 pm on Tuesday when the gas agency shuts. They tried to snatch the cash of Raju, who resisted and tried to raise an alarm. However, the accused shot him and made off with the bag.

Sumit Kuhar, DCP (crime), Gurgaon, said Raju died on the spot because of excessive bleeding.

“The white two-wheeler which was used for this robbery has been recovered. They had stolen it a few days prior to the crime,” the DCP said.
