According to Delhi Police, the accused Pawan Gahlot has been arrested and has confessed that he murdered Vikas Mehta to take revenge for his brother’s death.
The police registered an FIR at the Mohan Garden station after a statement of an eye witness who stated that Praveen Gahlot (Pawan’s brother) was murdered by a person named Vikas Dalal in May 2019 and Dalal had also died during the cross firing by the police.
Dalal was an associate of Pradeep Solanki, who had a link with deceased Vikas Mehta. Therefore Pawan Gahlot suspected that Vikas Mehta was involved in the conspiracy of murder of his brother. Due to the same, Gahlot wanted to take revenge from Mehta and murdered him on October 22.
As per police, during the course of the investigation, several raids were conducted at the hideouts of the accused. Secret informers were also deployed to trace the whereabouts of the accused and he was later arrested on the basis of secret information.
“Pawan told that prior to his brother’s death, his brother used to tell him that Mehta could harm him, so he always suspected Mehta’s involvement in his brother murder,” said Delhi Police.
