Police said Joginder, alias Jaggu Pahalwan, carried a bounty of Rs 50,000 from the Uttar Pradesh government and Rs 10,000 from Haryana police. He was shot dead at 10.30 am by three members of a rival gang.
The trio intercepted Joginder's car and shot him eight times. His driver Sandeep also took a bullet. At least 16 rounds were fired by both sides, after which the assailants fled.
"After police received a call about the shooting, they reached the spot and took the injured men to G.T.B. Hospital in Delhi where doctors declared Joginder dead. Sandeep's condition was stated to be stable," said Superintendent of Police (Rural) Jagdish Sharma.
Joginder's mother said that three men had visited him in the morning, after which he left saying he was going for a court hearing. "At about 11.00 am, we received a call that he had been killed. It seems a conspiracy," she said.
