Dwarka DCP Ankit Singh confirmed the incident, stating that the police received a PCR call from the Najafgarh police station area. The caller reported that a young man had been shot inside a salon near Pillar No. 80.

Despite medical treatment, both individuals succumbed to their injuries.
The deceased have been identified as Sonu and Ashish. As per reports, police said while Sonu was shot in the head once, Ashish received three bullet injuries in his head and one in his chest. Prima facie, personal enmity is suspected to be the reason behind the attack but the possibility of gang war cannot be ruled out, a police officer told news agency PTI. Further, Ashish had two criminal cases against him, police said, adding that both victims were residents of Nagli Sakrawati in Najafgarh area.
Teams from the Crime Branch and the Special Cell have been summoned to the crime scene. Both teams are gathering evidence from inside the salon to reach the culprits.
