New Delhi: Two unidentified men allegedly opened fire at the office of a car dealer in Maurya Enclave on Saturday. The police are investigating the matter to determine if this was an attempt at extortion.
The incident occurred on Saturday evening, with the police control room receiving a call at 6pm reporting the shooting. The victim, a 54-year-old man residing in Punjabi Bagh, informed the cops that two individuals on a scooter approached his office from the direction of Madhuban Chowk and fired shots.
“Despite being in the business since 1996, he claims to have no known enemies or received any threats that could explain the attack,” the officer said.
The police’s crime team is currently examining the scene, and they assure that appropriate legal actions are forthcoming. They are reviewing CCTV footage of the spot and nearby areas to ascertain sequence of events and to track the path used by the perpetrators to make their escape,” the officer added.
Cops said they are probing all angles, including an extortion bid. Earlier this month, five men were arrested for attempting to extort Rs 2 crore from a businessman in Dwarka. They first fired at his office in Najafgarh, injuring an employee.
Last year, gangster’s henchmen opened fire at a builder’s office in Dwarka Mor. The target had apparently refused to pay protection money of Rs 1 crore to the men.
