Man shot dead by drug mafia in Delhi, murder caught on CCTV
Two unidentified assailants in South Delhi’s Taimoor Nagar shot dead a 34-year-old man. Police are busy identifying the identity of the murderer and analysing CCTV footage of the incident which took place in the busy road.
According to the report, two unknown men opened fire at Rupesh Kumar, leaving him dead. In the CCTV footage, the victim Rupesh Kumar can be seen in the street when assailants walk past him and one of them pumps a bullet in his chest. After that, the two men casually walks away and the victim falls to the ground.
According to the report, these two unidentified men had a link with drug mafia active in the area. Rupesh was working against the sale of drugs, and that is why he was attacked, his family claimed. The victim’s neighbour also accused police of having a link with the accused.
Rupesh’s brother Umesh Kumar, who is also Taimoor Nagar’s RWA president, said, “Thousands of people buy drugs from these people. Taimoor Nagar provides a business of Rs. 25-30 lakh every day. We have been working against the drug network in the area. The police are hand-in-glove with these people. I had written to top police officers, spoken to them on phone and even met a senior officer. They had promised action, but nothing was done. And now they have killed my brother.”
Rupesh Kumar’s brother vowed to continue his efforts to fight against drug peddlers and said, “I can also be killed tomorrow, but I won’t stop.”
The incident triggered protests in the neighbourhood where locals set two motorcycles on fire and pelted stones at the police personnel who were trying to manage the crowd. Several policemen were injured and one of them was taken to the hospital.
“The situation has now been brought under control,” an officer told PTI.
