New Delhi: Two persons were arrested for allegedly killing a 34-year-old city techie two days ago in south Delhi's Safdarjung Enclave area.
Vikas, 27, and Rajesh alias Bengali, 27, residents of Indira Camp slum pocket in Safdarjung Enclave, were arrested last night, a police official said today.
Besides the duo, police also arrested Mukesh, 22, whom Vikas and Rajesh had sold the robbed cell phone of the deceased, Amit Virmani.
Virmani was attacked with a sharp-edged weapon on his lower abdomen on Thursday night when he was heading towards AIIMS metro station to catch train for home.
Following the incident, a team of policemen was formed to probe the matter.
On receiving a tip-off that Rajesh was trying to sell Virmani's cell phone at a cheap price, police laid a trap and arrested them.
"When questioned, Rajesh disclosed he and Vikas had attacked Virmani in a bid to loot valuables. When Virmani opposed, they attacked him with a sharp edged weapon and fled," the official added.
Virmani worked as a senior executive with digital cable TV and broadband internet service provider 'Hathway'.
He was taken to AIIMS Trauma Center where doctors declared him dead on arrival.
