A 30-year-old employee of Delhi Stock Exchange (DSE) was stabbed to death near central Delhi’s Rani Jhansi Road on Saturday night. Police said the man’s family suspected that he was killed following a property dispute.
According to the police, Mohammad Samir, who lived in Sadar Bazar with his elder brother and his family, had left for the DSE around 8am on Saturday. Police said when Samir did not return home till late night, his family members started searching for him and had also lodged a police complaint.
“On Saturday night while the search was on, police got a call reporting that body of a man has been found at Rani Jhansi Road. The body had multiple stab wounds in chest and abdomen. When we reached the spot we found that the man looked similar to Samir. His family was called who identified the body,” said a senior police officer who is not authorised to speak to the media.
The body was found 400 metres away from Samir’s house.
Police said preliminary inquiry revealed that two years ago Samir had a dispute with a few men in the neighbourhood over a property.
“His family suspects that the men with whom he had a dispute have killed him. They said Samir often used to spend some time with local residents after office. They suspect he was killed as he left office to reach home. We have registered a case of murder at Deshbandhu Gupta Road police station. A few suspects have been detained and they are being questioned,” the officer said.
Police are also checking CCTV footage from the vicinity of the spot where Samir’s body was found to identify the killers.
