Two killed in firing at Delhi councillor’s office

New Delhi, March 12 (IANS) Two ex-servicemen working as private security guards were killed during indiscriminate firing after a heated argument among some people at a liquor party at a councillor’s office here, police said on Saturday.

The incident occurred on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday (after midnight) in west Delhi’s Najafgarh area at the Indian National Lok Dal councillor Kishan Pehlwan’s office.

The deceased have been identified as Ashok Kumar, 40, and Fauzi, 42, — both private security guards of a financier and a property dealer of the area.

Police said Kumar died on the spot while Fauzi succumbed to his bullet injury at a private hospital.

Deputy Commissioner of Police R.A. Sanjeev told IANS that the deceased were celebrating at a party at Kishan Pehlwan’s office.

Pehlwan, considered as one of the most notorious gangsters in the capital for a decade, is a sitting councillor of the area. He is the brother of former Najafgarh legislator Bharat Singh, who was killed last year.

“Four-five other people residing at Kishan Pehlwan’s office were also involved in the party. A heated argument ensued among them over some issue after they consumed alcohol. Some of them started firing indiscriminately and the two received bullet injuries,” the DCP told IANS.

We have scrutinized the CCTV footage of the incident and questioned the other people involved in the party, the officer said: “The reason behind the firing would come to light soon.”
