A restaurant owner was shot dead on Tuesday night in Greater Noida near Delhi. The fight reportedly started over a delay in an order. Three accused have been arrested after an encounter with the police. The deceased man used to run a restaurant inside an apartment complex named Mitra. Late on Tuesday night, the delivery agent of online platform Swiggy reached the restaurant to order chicken biryani and whole vegetables. Police said three youths on a bike, who they say were walking near the restaurant, stopped and approached the delivery agent. One of the bikers worked with another food delivery service and stopped to ask a Swiggy agent about a job.

He got into an argument with an employee after the Swiggy agent’s order was delayed. Police said those three drunk men also jumped into the fight and allegedly shot its owner Sunil Agarwal in the head.
A restaurant employee and other staff members took the man to the hospital, where he was declared brought dead.

Rakesh Nagar, who lives near the restaurant, said, “The staff called me to inform that their owner had been shot. When I arrived, he was still breathing. I first dialed 100 and then the ambulance. Then we finally took him to the hospital in our car.”

After shooting, the youths fled on the bike. After scanning the CCTV footage, the police started in search of the accused. On Wednesday morning, the accused were seen in a street near the restaurant. An encounter broke out and one of the suspects got shot in the leg. All three were arrested.

Preliminary reports suggested the possible involvement of the Swiggy agent. In a statement, Swiggy said, “What has been reported is very worrying. If such a person was linked to Swiggy, we have reached out to the relevant authorities to help them verify the identity of the person involved in this heinous incident.” The online platform said that all its delivery partners are ready to provide the delivery service after a court case or criminal background check.
