Police also seized a vehicle from his possession, the DCP said, adding that Ashu works as a dealer of second hand cars in the national capital. Police suspect personal enmity behind the killing as a quarrel over petty issue had erupted between Khurvesh and the accused persons last year in Munshi Market at Nand Nagri, the DCP said.
