The firing at Malhotra’s house in the West Delhi neighbourhood took place on Sunday evening. CCTV footage showed two men on foot firing at the house, and the police also suspected the involvement of a third person who was possibly waiting nearby.

The attack led to simultaneous probes by local police, the special cell and the crime branch of the Delhi Police. However, it was the crime branch that got the breakthrough that led to the arrest of the two suspects.

An investigator said that the shooters were arranged by US-based alleged gangster Goldy Brar on behalf of jailed Lawrence Bishnoi who was allegedly demanding “protection money” from Malhotra.

Malhotra is an ex-MLA from the Shiromani Akali Dal and represented the Faridkot constituency in Punjab.
