A Haryana police sub-inspector was shot dead by a relative inside his house in the Safdarjung enclave in south Delhi on Sunday morning. The culprit is a Delhi Police constable and has been arrested.
The deceased, Virender Nandal (36), was staying at the house of his brother-in-law and Constable Vikram Singh for some time. Singh works at the Greater Kailash Police Station.
DCP (Southwest) Kaurav Sharma said, “We received a PCR call at around 8 am regarding the firing on the Safdarjung enclave and our staff rushed to the spot and found Nandal with a gunshot wound to the head.
During the investigation, police found that there was a fight between the two policemen before the shooting. Nandal borrowed money from Singh and asked him to repay the amount. However, the two got into a fight and Singh allegedly killed him with his service gun.
Police said they have registered a murder case against them and are investigating. Nandal also competed in several state level championships as a judo player.
