Police said a financial dispute between the two men, who are property dealers, had led to the brutal attack.

According to police, Khurana was at home when his partner Jolly came to his residence and allegedly attacked the family, killing his wife Anju (56) and son Ankush (33) and injuring Amit and Rajinder.

Police said Jolly knocked the door at around 11pm on Tuesday night and stabbed the domestic help, Rajinder, with a sharp-edged weapon multiple times.

Jolly then opened fire at Khurana’s son Ankush who was having dinner. Meanwhile, Anju came out of the room and tried to raise an alarm, but she too was attacked.

According to police, Jolly had come to kill Khurana and was looking for him. He also opened gunfire at Khurana who escaped, the police added.

In the frenzy, Khurana’s elder son Amit caught hold of Jolly. The father and son tried to pin him down but Jolly attacked them with a sharp-edged weapon causing them multiple injuries.

Neighbours heard the gunshots and informed the police. A team reached the spot and the accused Jolly was taken into custody.

Police said Anju had been shot in the chest while Ankush was shot in the head.

Spokesperson of Kailash Hospital said Anju and Ankush were brought dead while Khurana, his son Amit and Raju are in intensive care.

Superintendent of Police (City) Dinesh Yadav said, “Preliminary investigations suggest Khurana and Jolly had a dispute over money because of which the incident took place. The case is being investigated. Both used to lend money to people on interest.”
