New Delhi:

A 32-year-old restaurant owner was shot dead by unknown assailants in northeast Delhi’s New Usmanpur area, police said on Wednesday.

Sanjay Singh, who was arrested in a murder case, was attacked near his house on the intervening night of Tuesday and Wednesday while he was returning from the restaurant.

One of Singh’s friends found him injured on the road and informed the victim’s younger brother Nitin, who runs a dairy factory, a police officer said.

Nitin rushed to the spot and found Singh lying in a pool of blood near Hanuman Mandir Wali Gali service road, the officer said.

Singh suffered injuries to the head, right shoulder and elbow, and abdomen. He was rushed to Jag Pravesh Chandra Hospital where doctors declared him brought dead, according to police.

Police said seven spent shell casings, four pieces of lead and one live 7.65mm bullet were found at the scene.

Another officer said Singh was booked in connection with the murder of a man, Ravinder. The two lived in the same place.

“Efforts are on to identify those who killed Singh. Footage from CCTV cameras installed in the area is being scanned,” the officer said, adding that all angles of the case are being looked into.
