The DB Marg police has arrested a 34-year-old man from Ahmedabad, on Wednesday, for allegedly killing a shopkeeper in Grant Road, in July last year.

The accused has been identified as Wasim Khan, who is a contract killer, had stabbed the deceased on the orders of the victim’s previous employer over jealousy.

According to the DB Marg police, the victim Babulal Saini (44) had been working for Abid Ali in his speaker systems shop near the Grant Road railway station, since the past ten years. The officers said that four months ago, the employee had resigned and started his own business of selling loud speakers, and the place was located next to his former employer’s shop in the same locality. PI Pandhrinath Patil, from the DB Marg police station said that Saini had gained experience and collected enough money to start his own shop and within a span of four months, a lot of customers of his previous employer had begun making more purchases at Saini's shop. Also, his former employer Abid Ali had been staying in Jaipur and hardly visited his shop in Mumbai.

Patil said that since Abid’s shop had been losing customers and his business had slowed down. The jealous Abid Ali and his brother Shahid Ali then decided to get rid of their competitor permanently and plotted the murder. Abid Ali then gave a contract to two killers, Afsal Shaikh and Wasim Khan to kill Saini.

On July 16 last year, the two men entered Saini’s shop in the afternoon and stabbed Saini seven times in his chest and abdomen. Saini succumbed to his injuries on the spot. “Since it was a Sunday afternoon, there was no crowd in the locality. The police officers said that after they were informed about the murder, they scanned CCTV footage of the road and traced the two men entering the shop. The police traced two familiar numbers from Saini's contact list and immediately arrested Abid Ali and his brother Shahid Ali, who confessed to the murder and also revealed the names of the contract killers. “We had arrested Afzal Shaikh and were on the look out for Khan. We had sent teams to Jaipur, Sangamnagar and Ahmedabad to trace Khan,” Patil said.

On Monday, the police got a tip-off that Khan was seen in his village in Ahmedabad after which a team left from Mumbai and with the help of the Gujarat crime branch, arrested Khan on charges of murder.
