New Delhi, Sep 23 (IANS) Two contract killers were arrested for killing a cloth merchant here, the Delhi Police said on Friday.
Nawab Ali, 24, and Nakul, 26, both residents of east Delhi, were arrested on Thursday, the police said.
Both allegedly eliminated Subhash Yadav, 40, for payment of Rs 2 lakh from some of his lenders and financiers. Yadav was found murdered on September 18 with multiple stab wounds.
“During investigation, it was found that Yadav owed Rs 5 crore to his lenders. He was shifting his base to Bengaluru to avoid his lenders,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (East) Rishi Pal told reporters.
“We also recovered a knife, bloodstained clothes and a scooty without number plate used in crime,” the officer said.
The police said both arrested men were also involved in other heinous crimes. Pal said Nawab was released from jail in April.
