Keshav, a resident of Jagriti Vihar locality, was allegedly shot dead by cricketer Vipin Giri (22) with the help of three accomplices on November 9 after they abducted him, Superintendent of Police Om Prakash said on Thursday.

Giri, who was a neighbour to Keshav's family, and one of his accomplices and driver, Ankit, have allegedly confessed to the crime during interrogation.

The four took 21-year-old Keshav to Bulandshehar district and shot him, disposing of the body in a nearby canal, he
said.

Efforts are still on to recover the body, police said, adding that the two other accused are absconding.

A property dispute is said to be the reason behind the killing. The deceased's father Govind Pal Singh, a retired employee of the Irrigation Department, is currently working as a private contractor.
