Tahlka news Bureau, New Delhi:�A 61-year-old doctor was shot dead by an unidentified man at his clinic in southwest Delhi on Friday night. The victim Balwant Singh, is a general physician who has a clinic at Palam village. Mr Singh was getting some renovation done in his single-room clinic and as he was about to leave for home after the workers left at around 10 pm yesterday, a person approached him, fired a round and fled, a senior police official said. The bullet hit his neck while he was sitting in the clinic. �A police team reached the crime spot and rushed Ranawat to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him dead on admission. A murder case has been registered at the Palam Village police station against unknown person,� said Kumar. The preliminary probe, Kumar said, suggests that Ramawat was murdered over some personal enmity or monetary dispute. Investigators have learnt that apart from running his clinic from a 10x10 feet room, Ramawat also lent money on interest to needy people. �A local resident had seen an unidentified man coming out and running toward the main road after the gunfire. He, however, could not see the suspect�s face,� Kumar said. Two teams have been formed to probe the case and arrest the assailant.
