The Gurgaon police claim to have solved a murder case of a 21-year-old man with the arrest of two persons, including the director of a KPO (knowledge process outsourcing) firm, on Monday.

The city court on Tuesday sent the two men to two days’ police remand.

The accused have been identified as Ajay Kumar, 23, KPO director and a resident of Daulatabad and Sanjeev alias Sonu, 22, a native of Alwar, Rajasthan who presently lives in Laxman Vihar, Gurgaon.

On March 3, the accused had smothered their friend Amit Kumar to death in Daulatabad with help of their office boy Imtiaz.

The two then smothered Imtiaz to death on March 25 and threw his body in a well near Alwar as the police were questioning him.

The police said the motive of murder was ransom.

Inspector Jasvir Singh, in-charge, cyber cell, said a joint effort by the cyber cell and the CIA helped crack the double murder case.

Amit belonged to a wealthy family and his friend, Ajay, had a KPO in the Rajendra Park.

DCP (crime) Rajesh Duggal said, “Ajay’s brother Rinku was Amit’s classmate. Amit and Ajay often had drinks together. Ajay needed money, so he, along with his friend Sanjeev and Imtiaz, planned to kill Ajay and demand ransom from his family.”

Imtiaz called up Amit on March 3 from PCO and invited him to Sanjeev’s office in Rajindra Park over a drink. As planned, they killed Amit but when they took out Amit’s iPhone to make a call, they found it locked, said the police.

Their plan flopped as they could not make a ransom call. They then took Amit’s body in Ajay’s Honda Accord towards Sector 9 to dump it but could not find a suitable place. All this while, a security guard had noticed them.

The family of the deceased had filed a missing complaint on March 4 at the Rajindra Park police station.

The police are yet to recover the car. Ajay is a historysheeter and was involved in a rape case in 2009 and in an assault case in 2010.

Meanwhile, two Delhi residents were arrested with 150 gm smack on Monday. The contraband is worth R15 lakh in the international market.

The police said the accused identified as Mukesh Lal and Sarvesh, both from Delhi, had come to Noida on a motorbike to deliver drugs to a city-based businessman.
