New Delhi/Gurgaon, Mar 27 (UNI) The Gurgaon Police, investigating the murder of controversial Delhi Police encounter specialist ACP Rajbir Singh by his property dealer friend, today ruled out speculations that a third person had pumped bullets into the policeman.

Police maintained that Vijay Bhardwaj had used the same .32 bore revolver to kill the ACP, which he had borrowed from him last week for 'self protection' while carrying huge sums at odd hours.

Police sources, quoting the autopsy report, said two bullets had entered the skull of Rajbir. The bullets were of the .32 bore caliber, sources added.

Rajbir's alleged killer Vijay Bhardwaj too had claimed that he had gunned down the police officer on Monday night with the .32 revolver recovered from the scene of the crime.

There were speculations that two bullets that had hit Singh were apparently not fired from the recovered weapon, hinting at the possibility of another gun having been used in the crime.

Meanwhile, a police team has been sent to Kanpur where the seized revolver was manufactured, apparently at the Small Arms Factory (SAF).

Rajbir was known as controversial encounter specialist, with over 50 kills to his credit.
