NEW DELHI: Two men were killed and two women injured in a suspected gang war between two groups in southwest Delhi's Chawla area on the intervening night of December 20-21.  

Sunil, alias Doctor, was shot dead by Nafe Singh, alias Mantri, and two accomplices at Deenpur Mod in Najafgarh area at around 11 pm. Hours later at 2.30 am, Sunil's brother-in-law Kapil Sangwan launched an attack on Mantri's house in Chawla and killed the latter's father Harkishan Singh, and injured his wife Sharmila (32) and mother Kamla Devi (57).          

The bloody gang war began when Sunil took to intervening on behalf of his friend Suraj Bhan, from whom Mantri had taken some money. He called Mantri to Deenpur Mod, where the latter arrived with two of his accomplices and killed Sunil, a senior police officer said. Sangwan, then gathered men and arms to mount a revenge attack at Mantri's house, he said.

At around 2.30 am, over half a dozen men led by Kapil reached the house of Mantri and asked his father Harkishan Singh, 60, a retired head constable of Delhi Police, about him. When Harkishan denied having any information about Mantri, he was allegedly shot dead by Kapil, the officer said.      

As the ex-cop was shot, his wife Kamla came out of the house and was also hit with bullets fired at her. The attackers also shot and injured Mantri's wife Sharmila but spared kids in the house. They also took away the recorder of the CCTV cameras installed at Mantri's house, police said.

After the incident, neighbours rushed the injured women to hospital. Sharmila who was hit in the head and Kamla who was hit in abdomen and chest, were in a critical condition and undergoing treatment at a private hospital in Saket, added the officer.

Police said that several raids have been made to arrest Mantri and other accused. One of the attackers who visited Mantri's house has been identified although no arrests could be made.
