Traders are up in arms in Ghaziabad after a trader returning home with a cake to celebrate his son’s birthday was shot dead on a street.
On Wednesday, traders’ organisations held a joint press conference and gave an ultimatum to the police to nab those who killed Gagandeep Khanduja on Tuesday night.
“The murder has shaken up our community,” said Subhash Chhabra, President of the Turabnagar Traders Association.
Khanduja was on his scooter when assailants shot him twice in his head near the Nehru Yuva Kendra. He was declared dead at the Yashoda Hospital.
“We want them to solve the murder mystery within 24 hours. Otherwise, the traders in the city will go on strike from Thursday,” said Chhabra.
Superintendent of Police Akash Tomar said: “We have set up four teams of good officers and we are hopeful they will solve the murder mystery.”
