The police formed a special investigation team on Sunday to probe the killing of a 43-year-old garment trader, who was shot dead outside the gate of his residence at Roshanpura in Old Gurgaon on Friday night. The team scanned CCTV camera footage from the area to identify the three bike-borne men involved in the incident, the police said.
The CCTV camera footage shows three bike-borne assailants fleeing the spot. The team led by DCP (crime) Balbir Singh searched some places in Gurgaon and areas bordering Delhi.
Around 10pm on Friday, Sanjeev Jindal, who owns a garments showroom in Chandni Chowk, Delhi, was returning home from his shop when assailants pumped 3-4 bullets into him from close range. Jindal was shot in the forehead, neck and shoulder, the police said.
He had got off the metro at MG Road and boarded a bus to Sadar Bazaar. The police said the CCTV footage shows two men trailing Jindal who got off the bus and was walking home with a backpack and a white polythene bag in his right hand. As he reached the gates to his house, the men fired at him from close range, killing him on the spot.
As Jindal fell to the ground, the duo snatched the bag he was carrying. The second CCTV footage shows the two men running towards a motorbike on which a third member is waiting and all three flee the spot. The footage also shows one of them wielding a pistol while the other carried the white polythene bag.
Jindal’s family said he never carried cash with him and the bag was stolen in an attempt to colour the incident as a robbery.
