As per reports in the Times of India, an old rivalry is said to be the reason behind the murder. According to the police, Vikas Mor, alias Boxer, was nursing a grudge against Tejinder. He is a criminal from the native place of the victim. Vikas had allegedly killed Manish and Jaswant. They were supposed to be involved in the murder of his brother, Mohit in Narwana, Jind, on August 14. He was suspecting Tejinder’s involvement too in the murder and was waiting to take revenge against him.
Tejinder is a resident of Dhoomrakha Kallan, Jind, Haryana. Three days ago, Tejinder had come to Chandigarh. He was planning to take up the job of a taxi driver along with Sandeep. He arrived at Sector 17 in the taxi of Sandeep, where the four accused struck.
