New Delhi: A Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) leader and a business tycoon, who had also contested polls earlier, was shot dead inside his farmhouse on Tuesday morning by two assailants in south Delhi, officials said.
The slain businessman and politician, Deepak Bhardwaj, is said to be one of the richest contestants of the 2009 elections on a BSP party ticket, reports said. He, however, did not win the polls.
Initial reports said the killers drove in a black Skoda or BMW and entered the farmhouse at Rajokri. They entered on the pretext of booking his farm house for an event. However, when an altercation ensued, they shot him and fled immediately. He was taken to Fortis Hospital where he was declared dead.
