Four teams have been formed by the Gurgaon police to nab the killers of Surender Singh Rana, who was shot dead in broad daylight at Jharsa Road in front of revenue office. A number of raids have been conducted by these teams and sources in the police department said that they were very close to nabbing the accused.

Sources, in fact, said that a person who is closely connected to the accused, have been detained by the police. The post mortem examination of the victim by a medical board was conducted on Saturday and it revealed that Rana had sustained four gun shots that proved fatal. Rana was declared brought dead by doctors at civil hospital, Gurgaon.

The police, after questioning several persons in connection with the murder suspects, said that Rana was shot by Satpal Pahalwan, who has several cases registered against him in Gurgaon and Jhajjar. Rana (45) was shot on Friday afternoon after a tiff with four persons including Bala Devi, Naveen, Sanjay and Satpal Pahalwan over a financial dispute.

“The forensic team visited the spot again and scanned the area for more evidence. None of the CCTV cameras has given us any lead, but we do have some clues to work on,” said Sumit Kuhar, DCP, Crime.

Satpal Pahalwan is wanted in connection with multiple cases of murder, attempt to murder and extortion. Sources in the police said that it was still not clear whether Rana was shot by his own pistol or the accused had come with weapons. “The police has not found the victim’s pistol and it is suspected that it was also snatched by the accused,” ACP, Mohinder Sethi, said.

The police are also scrutinising the documents, pictures and cameras recovered from the victim’s silver Tata Safari. It had also called the owner of a photo shop on Khandsa Road for questioning about some freshly developed pictures recovered from the car. Sources said Rana worked for a television news channel and was also associated with a political party.
