The Gurgaon police has identified three men in connection with the murder of Vikrant alias Vicky who lived in Gopal Nagar, Delhi. He was shot dead at Palam Vihar area in Gurgaon on Sunday evening, police said.
Vikrant, 25, son of Nepal Singh is originally from Jhajjar district in Haryana.
The body was handed over to the family members on Monday after a postmortem examination. He suffered three bullet injuries, including one in the stomach, police said.
Police said they suspect personal enmity and inter-gang rivalry as the reasons behind the murder.
“We have identified three men - Rahul Kumar, Vikas Singh and Anshul. We have formed teams and are conducting raids to arrest the accused,” inspector Sandeep Kumar, SHO Palam Vihar, said.
Vikas is from Jhajjar, and Rahul Kumar and Anshul are from Najafgarh in Delhi.
Palam Vihar and Bajghera are turning into hunting grounds for criminals from Najafgarh and border areas of Delhi. The assailants find it convenient to commit crimes in the desolate areas and slip back to Delhi, where it is easier for them to find shelter and evade from being detected by the Gurgaon police. A number of carjacking, and other crimes have been reported from the area in the last few years because of its closeness to the Delhi border.
On Sunday, the four friends came to Bajghera and had several drinks together in a Chevrolet Beat car. After an hour, they drove towards the outlying areas of Bajghera and the trio shot Vicky, police said.
The cyber crime cell is also conducting investigation and has took call data records of the Vikrant, leading to the identification of the accused, police said.
Vikrant owned a pub/bar in Rajokri and was financially sound, police said.
An FIR was registered under Section 302 (murder) of the Indian Penal Code at the Palam Vihar police station on Sunday.
