Representative imageHYDERABAD: Seven people have been arrested for allegedly killing a car driver in Rajendranagar due to a financial dispute.
Cyberabad police on Saturday arrested Syed Irfan, Mohd Attaullah, Mohd Ziauddin, Mohd Waseem, Mir Ashraf Ali, Kishan Rao and Shaik Khaled.
The deceased, Mohammed Jaweed, and a friend had invested Rs 5 lakh in Irfan’s chit fund business. After facing losses, Irfan failed to return their money. When Jaweed would visit Irfan to get the money, he would dodge paying back.
Later, Irfan paid Rs 3 lakh and said he would pay the remaining amount soon. However, he failed to do so. Jawed would frequently visit Irfan and abuse him verbally. Ten days prior to the murder, the duo had an argument.
Fed up, Irfan decided to eliminate him. He, along with his associates, purchased two hunting sickles and a knife. On September 8, Jawed asked Irfan to meet him at Praja Kalyan mandapam at Shivarampally. Initially, he showed Jaweed copies of some property documents, promising to settle the balance but soon the duo had a heated argument.
Irfan then attacked the victim on his neck with a hunting sickle and later his associates stabbed him to death. Police arrested the gang from Shivrampally on Saturday and booked them for murder.
