Pune | The Crime Branch of Pune police today arrested a suspected aide of underworld don Chhota Rajan from New Delhi in the builder Deven Shah murder case. This takes the number of persons arrested in the case to seven.
A team of Pune police headed by the assistant commissioner (crime) Sameer Shaikh arrested Rajesh alias Pandit Agrawal from the national capital. Shah, a city-based builder, was shot dead by two men here on January 13 this year.
Police initially arrested Rahul Shivtare and Ravi Chorage in connection with the killing, which was followed by four more arrests.
According to police, the killing was the fall-out of a dispute over commission for a piece of land which the accused had allegedly secured for Shah.
“We had received information that Agrawal was in Delhi and arrested him today. He is suspected to be associated with Rajan,” said ACP Shaikh.
He did not divulge Agrawal’s alleged role in the killing, saying he was yet to be interrogated.
