A man along with his accomplices allegedly killed his 22-year-old nephew as he suspected him of having a bad eye on his brother's wife, the police said.
They have been arrested.
On October 4, the police received information from Jag Parvesh Chandra Hospital that a person named Akash was declared "brought dead".
The victim's uncle Umesh told police that his nephew had been residing with him since his parents had passed away, the police said.
During investigation, Akash's friends and family members were interrogated.
It was found that on October 4, he, along with Abhimanyu, Saurav and Rahul were present in Umesh's office in Brahmpuri, Deputy Commissioner of Police (northeast) A K Singla said.
The officer said Akash, Abhimanyu, Saurav were consuming wine and Rahul was doing smack.
However, Akash left the place when his maternal uncle Chaman, the main accused, came there. He went out as he never consumed alcohol in his presence, he said.
Suspecting Akash of having an eye on his brother Umesh's wife and that he quarrelled with his father over property, Chaman hatched a conspiracy along with Abhimanyu, Saurav and Rahul to kill him, they said.
The police said Chaman asked Abhimanyu and Saurav to consume liquor with Akash.
Soon after, Chaman and Rahul met Akash in a lane, and Rahul shot the victim in the head, killing him on the spot, they said.
