In northeast Delhi’s New Usmanpur area, a 32-year-old restaurant owner, Sanjay Singh, was shot by unidentified assailants on Wednesday.

Singh, previously implicated in a murder case, was ambushed near his residence while returning from the restaurant late Tuesday.

One of Singh’s friends found him lying injured on the road and informed the victim’s younger brother Nitin, who runs a dairy, 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 sustained injuries in 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.

The assailants left behind seven spent bullet casings, four lead pieces, and a live 7.65 mm round, police said.

Singh had a history with the victim of another murder case, Ravinder, both residing in the same locality.

Authorities are actively pursuing leads, including analysing CCTV footage from the vicinity, to apprehend the perpetrators, examining all possible angles in the investigation. (With inputs from PTI)
