Gurugram: Two persons have been arrested for allegedly gunning down a property dealer here last week, police said on Friday.

Narender Kataria, 28, was shot dead by armed assailants on June 22 in Sector 9, police said. 

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Sumit Kumar told the media that the four men, identified as Shashikant alias Sunny, Arjun, Sumit and Lalit alias Moni, shot Kataria when he was getting into his Tata Safari SUV .

All the four accused and the deceased belong to Basai village. DCP Kumar said that Sunny, 22, and Arjun, 21 have been arrested while Sumit and Lalit alias Moni are absconding.

The police officer said Kataria was shot dead as he had allegedly slapped Arjun nearly one-and-a half years ago.

"To avenge the slap, Arjun shot dead Kataria along with his accomplices," the officer said.

The arrested duo were on Friday presented before the court that remanded them to four-day police custody.

Earlier, Kataria's family believed he was murdered following a property dispute. His brother, Bhagirath, who registered a complaint with the police, had alleged that Narender was a victim of a property dispute.
