Two persons shot dead owner of a farmhouse in South Delhi's Rajokri area on Tuesday morning. Deepak Bhardwaj, the owner of the farmhouse, had contested in 2009 Lok Sabha election for the Bahujan Samaj Party.

The two persons entered the farmhouse in a car at around 9:15 am on the pretext of booking Bhardwaj's farmhouse for an event. However, the duo had a tiff with the owner and they shot him dead.

Bhardwaj was rushed to the hospital and where he was declared dead. Bhardwaj was one of the richest candidates when he contested elections, with declared assets of over Rs 600 crores.

He was also a business tycoon, with interests in real estate, hotels and education. Senior police officials have reached the spot.
