New Delhi, April 1 (IANS) Delhi Police Monday said three people have been detained and one arrested in connection with the murder of BSP leader and business tycoon Deepak Bhardwaj here last week.
“We have arrested Rakesh, the owner of the Skoda car, and we have detained three men – Sunil Mann alias Sonu, Purushottam alias Monu and Amit – who were involved in the murder of Deepak Bhardwaj March 26,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (South) Chhaya Sharma.
Amit was driving the car at the time of the murder. He was arrested Sunday.
“An investigation is on. It is too early to say what was the motive for the murder. We cannot reveal who was the main conspirator behind the incident,” Sharma said.
She added that police are yet to ascertain the involvement of Bhradwaj’s family or any relative in the murder.
Bhardwaj, a realtor and the richest candidate in the 2009 Lok Sabha election with declared assets of over Rs.600 crore, was shot dead March 26 around 9 a.m. at his 35-acre farmhouse in Rajokri in south Delhi.
The two suspected killers, along with an accomplice, fled in a Skoda car with a fake registration number.
The killers had entered the farmhouse on the pretext of meeting Bhardwaj. He was shot in the head and chest.
