Juvenile, 5 accomplices apprehended in disguised road rage murder
A juvenile and five of his accomplices were apprehended on Wednesday for allegedly shooting his former employer and injuring two others in Dwarka on Tuesday.
One of the persons injured in Tuesday’s attack is the brother of the 50-year-old deceased.
Sacked a month ago
According to the police, the juvenile allegedly held a grudge against his former employers after he was sacked for poor performance nearly a month ago.
Rajendra Garg, a dealer in multinational food and beverages, had left his Kakrola village office with his brother Ramesh and their employee Kamal Dev on Tuesday. While travelling towards Najafgarh Road, a biker brushed against his car. This was followed by an argument between them.
The trio were near Dwarka Mod when a motorcycle rammed their car. Mr. Rajendra Garg, who was at the wheel, was shot in the chest by the pillion rider, while the other biker attacked Mr. Ramesh Garg on the head with an iron rod, the police said.
The pillion rider also shot at Mr. Dev, who was in the back seat. The accused also allegedly took a bag containing ₹3.5 lakh. A passerby who tried to intervene was allegedly threatened by the accused, who fled after firing in the air. The passerby called the police after the accused left.
Mr. Rajendra Garg was declared brought dead, while his brother and employee are still undergoing treatment and are out of danger. The police initially suspected robbery as the motive but probe later revealed the role of a former employee.
“The juvenile tried to disguise the murder as robbery-cum-killing by fleeing with the bag of cash. However, the police zeroed in on him due to technical surveillance and footage from CCTV cameras. The minor allegedly hatched the fake road rage plot as robbery-cum-murder with his accomplices. The police have seized two weapons, 18 cartridges, two motorcycles and two knives from the accused,” said a senior police officer.
The juvenile allegedly roped in his friend Janak, who contacted his acquaintance Rocky and three others — Nagendra, Rohit and Babbar — in the plan.
The juvenile, Babbar and Janak are residents of Dwarka and its neighbouring areas, while the rest are from Ghaziabad.
