Teacher shot outside tuition centre
Victim killed in front of students; police form 10 teams to probe murder case
A 31-year-old teacher was shot dead at his tuition centre in north-west Delhi’s Jahangirpuri on Monday morning. The police have formed 10 teams to crack the case.
The victim, Ankit Kumar, had just reached the tuition centre, Pinnacle Study Centre, two streets away from his home, when he was shot in the head.
“He left the house at 8 a.m. When he reached the centre he saw only two students waiting. He was entering the gate when a man shot him from behind,” said Ankit’s brother Jaiparvesh Kumar, a teacher at the same centre.
As the accused fled the spot, one of the students ran to Ankit’s house to inform his family members. They rushed to the centre and found Ankit dead on the spot. “A girl student told us that the man was already sitting at the stairs outside the centre. He was wearing a mask to cover his face, shades and a cap,” the brother said.
The police were called and Ankit was taken to Babu Jagjivan Ram Hospital where he was declared brought dead.
The family suspects involvement of the elder brother of Ankit’s long-time girlfriend. They alleged that the brother was against their inter-faith relationship. However, the police are investigating the case from all angles.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (North-West) Aslam Khan said, “As of now, there is no communal angle to this murder. Personal enmity, professional enmity and illicit relationship as motive have not been ruled out,” she said.
