He said the nephew of Ahmed's brother-in-law Rehan and his accomplice Zainul have been arrested and added that the police would soon nab the alleged mastermind Muneer.

They overtook his vehicle at Sahaspur village and one of them, identified as Muneer, allegedly pumped bullets in his body killing him on the spot, he said. His wife was critically injured in the shoot out, but his two children escaped unhurt.

About the motive of the crime, Meena said it was borne out of domestic dispute, family matters and share in a property deal.
