Three people have been arrested here for killing a Delhi Police constable last month, officials said on Friday.

Kuldeep, 22, Sanjeev, 39, and Rajender, 30, were arrested late Thursday for the murder of Vijay Singh, who was posted as a constable in the Jahangirpuri police station.

"They killed Singh due to a personal grudge Kuldeep had against him and to obtain his service weapon with cartridges to commit further crimes. They pumped two bullets into Singh's forehead and then slit his throat with a knife," said Deputy Commissioner of Police, N.S. Bundela.

The police have recovered the weapons used in the crime.
