Crime  Murder  Chhattisgarh  Raipur  Showroom  Sanjay Agarwal  Policeman




RAIPUR: A policeman entered a showroom, shot at the owner with the INSAS rifle twice, and left. 

This victim--Sanjay Agarwal, (photograph in inset and also after the incident) who owned Sri Sai Motors, was rushed to the hospital but he was declared brought dead. 

The accused--Manoj Sen, was upset that Agarwal had sold him a defective car. Angry, he decided to kill the show room owner. The accused was later arrested and has been dismissed from service. 

According to police, Sen, a police personnel with the Chhattisgarh armed police, stepped into the showroom in the afternoon, pointed his gun at Agarwal and fired two shots. This resulted in Agarwal's death.

It is learnt that Sen had purchased a car from the showroom recently. It was priced at Rs 3.7 lakh. However, soon after buying it, Sen found that the car had developed a snag in the engine and informed Agarwal, who mostly dealt in pre-used cars.

But despite assurances, the complaint was not addressed. Agarwal would give excuses, rather than getting the car repaired. Sen had reportedly told some of his friends that he was fed up and would take a drastic action. However, that he would use the INSAS rifle to kill the car showroom owner, was beyond anyone's imagination.
