Gurgaon, Feb 21 : A contractor allegedly killed a Delhi-based property dealer he owed money to by pushing him off the 22nd floor of an under-construction building here, police said Thursday. He has been arrested.

The accused has been identified as Vinod Arora, a resident of Delhi's West Patel Nagar.

According to police, Arora borrowed money on interest from property dealer Nand Kishore, who lived in the same area.

Arora, a Plaster of Paris (POP) sub-contractor, needed more money but was denied it. He Wednesday took Nand Kishore to Gurgaon on the pretext of showing the sites where he was working.

However, even after being shown sites, Nand Kishore refused to lend more money and an irate Arora threw him off the 22nd storey of an under-construction building in sector 48.

Arora first tried to present the case as an accident, than suicide but finally admitted the truth.

"We have registered a case under section 302 and some other sections of IPC," said an official from the Badshahpur police station.
