There is high alert in the capital due to the G-20 summit. The police are also making tall claims about the security system. Defying the police, miscreants riding bikes and scooters shot an Amazon senior manager and his maternal uncle at a distance of a few steps from the police station in Bhajanpura area of North-East Delhi on Tuesday night.
Manager Harpreet Gill (36) and his maternal uncle Govind (32) were taken to the nearby Jag Pravesh Chand Hospital in critical condition, where Harpreet was declared brought dead. Uncle’s treatment continues. It is suspected that the incident occurred during road rage. On Wednesday, the police conducted the post-mortem in the mortuary of GTB Hospital and handed over Harpreet’s body to the family.
Harpreet Gill lived with the family at Gali No. 1, Subhash Vihar, Bhajanpura. His family consists of father Karnail Singh, mother Swarndeep Kaur and a younger brother Sunny Gill. Harpreet was posted as Senior Manager in Amazon for the last 14 years. Presently he was posted in the office at Zakhira. Govind Singh, who appears to be Harpreet’s maternal uncle, lives with his family in the same street.
He runs a momos shop by the name of Hungrybird in Bhajanpura Market. Harpreet came home from his office on Tuesday night. Late night around 11.00 pm, both of them left the bike for some work.
