On Monday night, unidentified assailants shot dead Manish Gujjar, elder brother of jailed gangster Binder Gujjar in Gurgaon’s New colony. The incident occurred around 11pm when Manish, alias Pappu was going to collect at one of his liquor shops, when a group of four-five men fired at him near Prem Mandir.
Manish, 42, was accompanied by his driver Sukhbir and an aide Liyakat and was rushed to Medanta where he succumbed to injuries. Both Sukhbir and Liyakat were also injured and are currently undergoing treatment at the hospital. A Gurgaon police spokesperson said that the assailants, four-five in number were already waiting near the liquor shop and fired at him while he was still in his SUV. At least 15 rounds were fired at Manish and the police suspect that the murder was a result of inter-gang rivalry.
Manish’s younger brother, Binder Gujjar is serving a term at Bhondsi jail in connection in relation with murder of a property dealer Raju Sethi on November 10. 2015.
Their youngest brother Manoj Gujjar is one of the accused booked by Mumbai police as a conspirator in the alleged fake encounter of Sandeep Gadoli at a Mumbai hotel on February 7, 2016. Manish was a liqour businessman and operated 32 liquor vends across Gurgaon.
