4 held for killing insurance agent

New Delhi, January 23

Four men were arrested for allegedly abducting and killing an insurance agent after calling him to Noida on the pretext of buying a policy from him, the police said on Thursday.

The accused — Vinod Kumar, Sandeep, Monu Sharma and Sunny — were nabbed from Nangloi in outer Delhi and its adjoining area in connection with the killing of Deepak Dua. They were previously involved in honey-trap incidents, the police said.

The accused had called Dua to Noida on January 6. They abducted the insurance agent and tried to extort Rs 25 lakh from him. The accused, who were debt-ridden, strangled Dua after failing to get money from him and dumped his body in a canal near Bulandshahr in Uttar Pradesh, according to the police. A case was registered after the relatives of Dua filed his missing complaint and expressed apprehension that he might have been abducted. — PTI
