PATNA: A special team of the Delhi Police has arrested six people, including an arms supplier in Bihar’s Siwan, in connection with an attack on a businessman in the Dwarka area. The arrested individuals include the victim’s business partner, who is believed to have hired a contract killer to carry out the attack. The police have also seized eight pistols and 11 live cartridges supplied from a firearm factory in Siwan.
The businessman, identified as Bijender, survived the attack that took place in the Dwarka North police station area. During subsequent searches, the police apprehended the six accused, identified as Shivkumar Yadav, Satyendra Yadav, Rahul Yadav, Ankur Singh, Sunny, and Bablu Sharma. Shivkumar Yadav, the prime accused, is Bijender’s business partner and had a dispute with him.
According to the report, DCP Dwarka M Harshvardhan said that the accused were arrested during a large-scale operation launched by the police. Yadav hired shooter Rahul to kill Bijender and went to Siwan in Bihar with him to meet Bablu and Ankur, owners of a firearm factory, to procure the weapons. Shivkumar then sent money to Rahul through his aide Satyendra. Later, Rahul and Ankur came to Delhi with Satyendra to plan the attack.
The accused stayed at Bharat Vihar in Kakrola, and a motorcycle was made available to them to carry out the crime. The police, using CCTV footage, technical surveillance, and local intelligence, nabbed the six accused, including the arms supplier from Siwan, as per the report.
