At the residence of the accused persons, a heated argument broke out between the customer's wife and the agent over the part payment of loan, police said.
Subsequently, customer Arvind and his both sons Alok and Anil came out of their house. Arvind and Anil caught hold of the victim while Alok fired four rounds upon him by a country made pistol, S D Misra, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) said.
Three bullets hit the victim's body. After that, presuming that the victim had died all three fled from the spot, he said.
Following a tip-off, the accused duo were arrested on April 24 from near Metro Station, Nangloi, he added.
Both accused brothers are unemployed and have criminal records. They wanted to dominate their area and hence arranged firearms, the DCP said.
