Police explores revenge angle 

It has been reported that Jirjish previously worked in Kumar’s office but he was fired from the job about a month ago.

As Jirjish felt humiliated, he decided to take a revenge from the advocate by robbing the his house, another senior police officer said.

Further elaborating the incident, an officer said that on Monday around 9 pm, Deepak saw two accused men standing on the staircase leading towards the fourth floor of the building. Upon being questioned, they said they had come to check water in the building.

 "They then overpowered and tied Deepak on the third floor and asked for the code of electronic safe. There was a knife in the kitchen using which they stabbed Deepak when he refused to share any detail. Alarmed by the noise, the advocate's son Aditya came from second to the third floor but by then the accused who had stabbed Deepak had fled the spot," he said.

"It was initially doubted that Kamal was an accomplice, since he was missing since Monday night from the time of the stabbing incident. Later, when the premises were searched, they found his body inside the bed in the servant room, which is also used as a storeroom," the officer said.

Raids were conducted across Delhi and both were nabbed from different places. Jirjish was apprehended from a bus stand when he was trying to take a bus to his native place in Uttar Pradesh and Aman was apprehended from his hideout in Bawana, he added.

“Jirjesh did not know Deepak as he was hired recently while Kamal knew him, hence the accused duo killed him to conceal their identity," he added.
