Two persons were arrested in connection with the abduction and murder of a corporate executive in Gurgaon last month. The duo was identified as Sumit Kumar and Pritam, and they were arrested by the CIA team from Huda City Centre Metro station on Thursday evening. Both were produced before the court on Friday.

Police said the accused were involved in killing Ashok Kumar, who hailed from Alwar, Rajasthan, and worked for a company in Sector 44, Gurgaon.

Kumar’s body was found by the police in village Dhorka on the outskirts of Gurgaon on February 12, and the accused had been absconding with his ATM cards.

According to the police, the two men were arrested from an autorickshaw stand near Huda City Centre Metro station by the crime investigation agency, which had received a specific information that the suspects will be in the area.

On questioning, they told the police that they had spent around Rs 98,000 using Kumar’s ATM cards and cash robbed from him.

On the day of the crime, both Sumit and Pritam had offered a lift to Kumar in their vehicle. They later killed him after stealing cash and ATM cards from Kumar. His body was dumped near Dhorka village from where the police recovered it. Both the accused are from Murthal in Panipat district of Haryana, police said.
