The police teams based in intelligence and other inputs had arrested two accused -- identified as Sandeep alias Deepu (28) and Gurmeet (32), both residents of Jakholi. During interrogation, the accused confessed that they used to help the deceased Om Parkash at his liquor shop and used to get good food and liquor to drink. Due to some conflict time and again, a rivalry arose with the contractor due to which they took this extreme step. The accused later fled away from the scene of the crime.
