A 22-year-old property dealer was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Vijay Vihar area of North Delhi, police said on Monday.

Sumit was found lying in a pool of blood late on Sunday night by policemen patrolling near Rithala Road in Rohini area.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him brought dead, police said. They added that there were two bullet wounds in his body. “Sumit had consumed alcohol with his friends on Sunday evening. But how he reached Rithala Road is not clear yet. His mobile phone and other valuables were not stolen. This means that the motive behind murder was not loot,” a police officer said.

Police suspect personal enmity or property-related feud behind the murder and suspect that someone known to Sumit might have been involved.- PTI
