Two real brothers killed each other over an alleged property dispute in Delhi’s Civil Lines.
The deceased, 35-year-old Rahul Nagar and his younger brother Tanuj Nagar (24), lived with their parents and two other siblings near Tis Hazari court, the police said.
Rahul worked in a city court, while Tanuj was unemployed. The incident took place on Sunday night. There were no eyewitnesses at the time of the crime.
“We suspect that first Tanuj fired at his elder brother Rahul, who then caught hold of the pistol. The brothers got into a scuffle and Tanuj was accidentally shot in the chest,” the police said.
“Rahul then tried to escape but fell on the road, Tanuj followed him and fired at him again. After some time, Tanuj also fell down due to the bullet injury,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (North) Monika Bharadwaj.
Both of them were rushed to a hospital where they were declared dead by doctors.
Police suspect that the brothers fought over a property dispute, but are also probing other angles to ascertain the cause of dispute. The weapon, which belonged to Tanuj, has been seized, the police said.
The bodies of the two brothers were handed over to their family after post-mortem on Monday, they said.
