New Delhi: Two personal security officers of former councillor Krishan Pehelwan were shot dead outside his house in southwest Delhi's Najafgarh area, a month after his brother, who was an ex-MLA, was murdered.
The incident occurred last night when a private function had been organised at the former councillor's place, police said.
A heated argument broke out between the victims, who were personal security men of Pehelwan, and a group of youths, after which the two were shot dead, an official said, adding teams have been formed to arrest the culprits at the earliest.
In March last year, Pehelwan's brother Bharat Singh, who was a former MLA, was shot dead by assailants, an incident which was fallout of an old gangwar in the area.
Police has ruled out gangwar in last night's shooting and said that some of the accused have been identified.
