Two others were arrested for allegedly destroying evidence who allegedly helped hide the clothes and pistol.

The victim, Salman, lived with his family in north-east Delhi's New Jafrabad. His father owns a jeans-manufacturing unit and Salman sometimes used to assist him.

Police said Salman left with the accused around 9 pm. Later that night, police got a call from Lok Nayak Hospital that a man had been admitted with a gunshot wound.
