A hit-and-run accident that took place on September 10 in Sector 13 here killing a youth, Robin Nagpal, and injuring his friend, Arvind, has turned out to be a murder.

The probe has revealed that the murder was planned by one of the three accused who wanted to kill Arvind due to some old enmity.

“The police have arrested three persons, including mastermind Raj Kumar Bathla, alias Raju, of Ram Bagh Colony and two others Gaurav of Roop Colony and Neeraj of Hari Ram Enclave in the city,” said Surinder Singh Bhoria, Superintendent of Police (SP). The police also recovered the vehicle used in the accident.

In the meanwhile, a speedy car hit them from behind. They were rushed to a hospital, where Robin was declared dead while Arvind is still battling for life.

Bhoria said plotter Raj had admitted that he had an old enmity with Arvind over a shop on Kunjpura road. On the day of incident, Raj was driving the car of Neeraj, who along with Gaurav accompanied him.
