New Delhi: A 30-year-old man was shot dead in broad day light at Sarita Vihar underpass on Tuesday while he was going towards Kalindi Kunj.

Police identified the victim as Raghuveer (30) after an identity card was found in his pocket. He was a cash collection agent working for banks and some large business houses in the area.

 

Police suspect it to be a case of robbery as the victim had a lot of cash with him, which he was going to deliver.

The victim was found lying in a pool of blood by some passersby who informed the police and rushed him to Apollo hospital where he succumbed during treatment.

The police said that the incident occurred around 4.30 pm when someone spotted Raghuveer’s bike lying a few metres away from him on the carriageway going towards Sarita Vihar from Crowne Plaza. It was found later that he was carrying two bags, one of which was missing.

Deputy commissioner of police (southeast) Chinmoy Biswal said a case of murder under Section 302 of Indian Penal Code was registered. Police suspect Raghuveer was shot while he was riding after which the killers picked up the bag and left.

 

The killers may have been on a two-wheeler as well. It’s unlikely that anyone heard the gunshot as the stretch remains busy through the day. But the killers may have fled towards Noida through Kalindi Kunj. CCTV feeds from the area are being scanned.

Raghuveer had collected the cash from two places near Govindpuri and was going to Kalindi Kunj to make some payments.

Locals said that Raghuveer was from Rajasthan and had been staying on rent at Pul Prahladpur area for two years after joining a finance company based in Okhla. He is survived by his wife and a 10-year-old son. It’s possible someone known to Raghuveer alerted the killers, police said.
