New Delhi, September 7
One more psychotic killing was witnessed today in Swaroop Nagar, near Rohini, in North-West Delhi killing three persons while three other were injured after two men went on a half-an-hour shooting before firing at themselves leaving one dead and the other battling for life.

The accused have been identified as Rajveer Sharma (30), father of two, and his friend Manish Sharma (23), who runs a transport business. It all started around 4 pm today when the accused entered Rajveer's 38-year-old brother Kishan Sharma's house and shot at him. He is in a critical condition. Initial probe has revealed that Rajveer and Kishan were involved in a property dispute.

Rajveer and Manish then fled from Kishan's house on a motorcycle. They straight away went to Manish's girlfriend Jyoti Saini's house, which is around 600m from Kishan's house, and shot her. "Jyoti (23) was targeted because her parents fixed her marriage with someone else. She had an engagement ceremony last month and was scheduled to get married on November 19," said a police official.

They then went to meet Usha Yadav (25), a teacher with a private school in Model Town, and shot her. Police sources said that Usha was Rajveer's former girlfriend. The accused then returned to Rajveer's house where they shot at Rajveer's wife Pooja and daughters Khushi, 8 and Rashi, 3. Khushi died on the spot. They then decided to shot themselves.

The police said that the motive of the shootout is suspected to be failed relationship. "Reasons behind the incident are suspected to be a property dispute and failed relationships of Rajveer and Manish. We have seized three country-made pistols used in the incident," said a senior police official.

"Khushi, Jyoti and Usha were killed in the incident while Pooja, Rashi and Kishan suffered critical injuries. Rajveer also died after he shot himself, while Manish is undergoing treatment for critical injuries," the official added.

The victims were taken to Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital, however, those critically injured were later shifted to Lok Nayak Hospital.

The police is waiting to question Manish to confirm the reason behind them taking such an extreme step and ascertain the exact sequence of events. A crime team and Rohini Forensic Science Laboratory team have examined the spots.

Dwarka Boy death
Family suspects 18-yr-old neighbour
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, September 7
The family members of a 14-year-old boy, who was found dead under mysterious circumstances in Dwarka, have alleged the involvement of his friend in the incident as blood stains were found in his house.

The deceased, Vaibhav Kumar's father Dr Vijender said that they suspect one 18-year-old Aman Yadav, who stays on the seventh floor of the eight-storey building, may be involved in this matter. He said that Aman is known to be a drug addict and was earlier involved in heated arguments with Vaibhav.

He said that they are not satisfied with the way investigation is being carried out and want a case of murder be lodged on the basis of the evidence available. "We are disappointed as investigators say that FIR would not be lodged until they receive the post-mortem report," said Dr Vijender. "We suspect foul play due to blood stains found near lifts on the fourth, fifth and seventh floor of our building and inside Aman's house," he said.

Vaibhav, a Class XI student of Bal Bharati Public School in Dwarka Sector 12, was found dead at Skylark Apartment in Dwarka Sector 6 after he went missing while returning from a tuition class on Wednesday evening.

His father said that a crime team and Rohini Forensic Science Laboratory team have examined Aman's house. "We are shocked that the police has not taken any action against Aman despite having strong evidence. It has come to light that the police did question Aman for hours on Thursday," he said.

The police said that it is ascertaining whether the incident was a suicide, and inquest proceedings under Section 174 of the CrPC are being carried out.

Being a doctor himself, Dr Vijender emphasised that Vaibhav had died over an hour before falling from the building. He said his claim is also supported by doctors at Ayushman Hospital, where Vaibhav was taken after the incident and doctors there declared him brought dead. Dr Vijender further said that there were injury marks on Vaibhav's right thigh and back, and marks of being dragged on his left leg.

Footage retrieved from a CCTV camera installed in the building shows Vaibhav's entry twice in the society, first around 6.50 pm and then around 10 pm. "We have no idea as to where he was between 7 pm to 10 pm. We suspect that he was with Aman and was attacked over some issue," he said.

Paras Bhasin Case
Train canít cut body into 16 pieces: Experts
Tribune News Service

New Delhi, September 7
Railway experts in Paras Bhasin's murder case have said that a body could not be mutilated into more than two pieces if crushed under a speeding train. The preliminary reports say that the incident happened within a span of 9-11 minutes, adding on to the dilemma of investigators.

Investigation by the Railway police has revealed that no heavy object hit the train on the day of the incident. The Railways had questioned two drivers of the trains that crossed the track where Paras' severed body was recovered on Saturday evening. Railway officials said that a local passenger train from Delhi to Ghaziabad that passed the Pandav Nagar tracks was not fast enough to cut the body into 16 pieces. If the Kanpur-bound Shatabdi Express, which has also crossed the track at the time of incident and was at high speed, would have scattered the body into pieces, but no heavy object hit the train that day.

Paras was last seen at the Laxmi Nagar Metro station in East Delhi around 4 pm and just 11 minutes later his family was informed about his death by an anonymous caller. Following which, the police registered a murder case.

The police also said that the last call received on Paras' mobile was at 1:55 pm and he was last seen at the Laxmi Nagar Metro station at 4:11 pm. Notably, Pandav Nagar railway track is 7-8 minutes away from the Metro station.

Police sources said that they are baffled at the fact that the incident was informed to them within three minutes of happening and his family got the anonymous call immediately.
