Delhi policeman representing India

NEW DELHI: A Delhi Police constable is representing the Indian wrestling team in the 96-kg (Greek-Roman) category at the ongoing World Wrestling Championship at Budapest in Hungary.

A resident of Rohtak in Haryana, Constable Sanjeev Kumar was inducted into the Delhi police in 1999. In 2002, he became the Delhi champion and then earned silver medal in the national championship at Hyderabad. In 2003, he won bronze medal at a senior national wrestling competition held at Ranchi in Jharkhand.

The police said it was after 23 years that a Delhi policeman was participating in the World Wrestling championship, held from September 26 to October 2. The present Assistant Commissioner of Police, Jagmendra Singh, had represented India in the championship way back in 1982.

Businessman shot dead

NEW DELHI: A 35-year-old businessman was shot dead by unidentified persons at Vikaspuri in West Delhi on Monday night.

According to the police, Satvir Singh, a resident of Najafgarh in South-West Delhi, had recently bought a second hand bus and was apparently trying to learn driving. Around 10-30 p.m., one of the tyres of his bus got punctured near Dholi piao in Vikaspuri.

While Satvir was changing the tyre, two unidentified men came in a car and one of them shot at Satvir once. The duo then escaped from the scene. Satvir was rushed to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Hospital where he was declared brought dead.

So far the police have not been able to ascertain the motive behind the murder. However, personal enmity or some business rivalry has not been ruled out.
