Bike-borne assailants posing as delivery agents shot dead a man in Gurugram.


Gurugram: A 25-year-old man was allegedly shot dead by two motorcycle-borne assailants dressed as food and grocery delivery agents in a village here, police said on Saturday.

The entire incident was captured in a CCTV footage in which the assailants are seen running after the victim and firing, he said, adding that an FIR has been registered in the matter.

The incident took place around 9 pm on Friday when Anuj, who worked as a bouncer, was in the market area of ​​Alwaas village in Gurugram district, a senior police officer said.

The motorcycle-riding duo, dressed in Zomato and Blanket uniforms, allegedly fired five shots at Anuj and fled the scene, the officer said.

The victim was taken to the hospital where doctors declared him brought dead, police said.

He said that Anuj was a resident of Kadarpur village and worked as a bouncer in a private liquor shop.

DCP (South) Siddhant Jain said, “The motive behind the murder is still unclear but it could be a result of an old enmity as three cases including extortion were registered against the victim earlier.”

“Special police teams have been formed and raids are being conducted to nab the accused,” Jain said.

The deceased's father Ranbir Singh told the police that his son was sitting in his car at HBR Chowk while Anuj's uncle was buying fruits.

Meanwhile, two youths came on a motorcycle and hit the car from behind. When Anuj was getting out of the car to confront the two, they allegedly fired at him. The complainant said that when he started running to save himself, the accused chased him and shot him.

Following the complaint, an FIR was registered under sections 302 (murder) and 34 (conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code and under the Arms Act at the Sector 65 police station on Saturday against the unidentified accused, police said.

He further said that the body was handed over to the heirs after the post-mortem.
