A property dealer was shot dead on Thursday night in what could be a real estate related crime, police said.
The deceased, Bharat Bhushan, 40, was shot multiple times, and his body was found in a vacant plot adjacent to his office at Ganpati Nagar in Sadhrana ki Dhani, which comes under the Sector 10 police station.
Police said Bharat Bhushan was watching television with four to five acquaintances at his first floor office when an unidentified man called him downstairs around 9.30pm on the pretext that someone came to meet him. However, after some time, his associates rushed down hearing five to six gun shots only to find him lying wounded.
Police have registered a case against unidentified persons at the Sector 10 police station.
“The deceased was shot in the shoulder, right arm and ankle, and he died on the spot. We have registered a case and the investigation is on. This appears to be a property related crime,” Jai Prakash, the investigating officer, said.
The CCTV cameras at the property dealer’s office were non-functional and police could not get any footage to identify the assailants.
Bharat Bhushan is from Chabili village in Jhajjar district and operated his real estate business from his office in Ganpati Nagar. Police suspect that this murder could be the result of a property deal turning sour similar to the Farrukhnagar double murder in which a property dealer had orchestrated the killings.
