Dispute over bank loan repayment led to murder of Chandni Chowk businessman
Friend allegedly shot him & dumped his dead body in Dwarka area
New Delhi, Feb. 19 (Delhi Crown): A dispute between two close friends over the repayment of a bank loan worth around Rs 1.5 crore led to the murder of one of them, with the main accused still being at large.
The murder took place on the night intervening Thursday-Friday (Feb. 17-18). The deceased has been identified as Prakash Aggarwal (45), a resident of Sitaram Bazar, Hauz Kaji, Chandni Chowk in Old Delhi.
His friend, and the main accused, has been identified as Kamal Sharma.
Sharma allegedly shot Aggarwal multiple times, and then dumped his body in Dwarka area with the help of his accomplice Vishal.
Aggarwal’s dead body was found along a DDA park wall, near Village Pochanpur, Dwarka Sector-23.
The blind murder case was cracked by a special police team led by Dwarka ACP (Operations) Vijay Singh Yadav. The team comprised of Inspector Naveen Kumar Yadav, besides others.
Both Aggarwal and Sharma were close friends once upon a time. They jointly took a loan worth around Rs 1.5 crores on a property which was owned by Aggarwal alone. Both had got half-half portion in the loan amount and were supposed to repay their respective shares.
But later Prakash stopped paying the loan instalments and asked Kamal to contribute to the payments. This led to a dispute. Kamal decided to kill Prakash so that he can enjoy his part of the loan amount and, hence, called Prakash to meet on Feb. 17 in Palam area near Dwarka.
After getting a suitable chance, he shot Prakash and dumped the dead body with the help of his servant-cum-accomplice Vishal in his own Ford Figo car. Vishal has been arrested and the search is on to trace Sharma who, police said, is at large for over three days.
Vishal (19) is said to be a resident of Palam, near Dwarka.
When Prakash Aggarwal didn’t reach his home on the night of Feb. 17, his wife Kanika Aggarwal came searching for him with the help of the Google History of his mobile phone. She reached the very location where the Dwarka District Police had located her husband’s dead body. Later, she identified the dead body, said the police.
