Restaurateur Singh, who was the target, claims Ravi Yadav who allegedly hired the shooters, owes him `25 lakh; Singh says he and Yadav were friends

PANJIM: Ravikant Yadav, an ex Indian Navy personnel, allegedly hired sharpshooters to kill Gajendra (Chotu) Singh, a businessman from Anjuna, reportedly because of some business rivalry.

Herald spoke to the target of the sharpshooters, Chotu Singh on Saturday, who claimed that Yadav owes him Rs 25 lakh, which he has been demanding for the past one year. 

β€œIt is only after I demanded my money back that Ravi started acting in a weird manner, else we were very good friends. We were even operating a joint business earlier,” Singh said. 

He said that the he had left the restaurant, in which he had left in the hands of Yadav. β€œI am now completely cut off from him. I had told him to occupy the establishment on the condition that he pay me my investment in six months time,” Singh said, stating that has not been done. Singh said there is no other reason for Yadav to seek to take revenge against him. 

He said Yadav in the past threatened him even on phone. Following his complaint an FIR was registered at Calangute Police Station last month, he added.

Yadav is now wanted by Goa Police in 3 cases, including this case. He is also wanted by CB in a prostitution case and in a threat to kill case at Calangute Police Station.
