Two gamblers for two hours drove around with a body in their car, looking for a place to dump it. The duo was disappointed with the presence of police and pedestrian movement and finally decided to take a chance and dump it in the open field in Panipat. The body which they carried along with them was of Gaurav Khera’s, a west Delhi trader who allegedly owed the duo Rs 16 lakh. Karandeep and Manpreet dumped the car at Sonipat, 50 km from where they had dumped the corpse.
The police nabbed both of them from west Delhi after finding the abandoned car with bloodstains in the back seat. DCP (west) Vijay Kumar said both the alleged culprits have been arrested and further investigation is underway. It was during the probe the police found out that the vehicle which was abandoned is owned by Khera. The family initially filed a complaint that he was missing. The police official informed the family after the car was found. Family members said that both culprits have in several occasions harassed him for non-payment of money.
According to his family, Khera left the house saying he was going for some business after which he never returned. The police said that the duo had called him to Moti Nagar and a confrontation ensued over non-payment of money. Following this, Khera was assaulted with wooden sticks. The police said, “We found evidence of the assault. During questioning, they told us he was shot in the back. The post-mortem report is awaited.” The officer said that they were involved in the gambling business and had investments in several other businesses. The police is also looking into the involvement of other people.
