Ghaziabad, Aug 9 (IANS) A realtor who shot dead his female employee’s boyfriend because he desired her friendship has been arrested, police said on Wednesday.
Superintendent of Police Akash Tomar told the media that builder Dinesh Sharma was desperate to have a relationship with Shivani and so conspired with two others to have her boyfriend Asif eliminated.
He engaged an office assistant, Lucky alias Aman Singh, and a contract killer, Rajiv, to do the job.
On August 4, when Shivani and her friend came out of Gaur Central Mall, Sharma opened fire at Asif. Asif, who took three bullets in his chest and abdomen, was declared dead at a hospital.
Shivani, who was taken into custody then, told the police that Sharma objected to her 10-year-long friendship with Asif and had hatched a conspiracy to eliminate him.
Sharma, Lucky and Rajiv then went underground. On Tuesday midnight, police caught Sharma and Lucky at Lal Kuan.
Sharma confessed he himself shot Asif dead. The police recovered a pistol of 30 calibre along with cartridges from him. Rajiv is on the run.
“Shivali’s role is also being probed. Till now she has not been given a clean chit,” Tomar said.
