Police in Nairobi are investigating the killing of 35-year-old Kenyan tycoon Karandeep Singh Dhilon.
Dhilon was found dead in his house in Nairobi’s Westlands area on Friday night with a single gunshot wound in the mouth, Standard Digital reported. Police said the bullet was fired in his mouth and exited at the back of his head.
Dhilon, who had invested in wheat and transport businesses in Narok and Nairobi, was alone in his house when his killers arrived. Detectives suspect the criminals broke into his house and waited for him to arrive before murdering him.
The gunmen also poisoned Dhilon’s three dogs, which were all found dead in his compound. His family was away in India at the time of the killing incident.
“It seems the killers entered the house using the backdoor and stayed there for long before the deceased arrived home,” said Nairobi police commander Philip Ndolo.
Neighbors said they heard noises emanating from his house in the wee hours of the night but thought it was normal. His naked body was found in his bathroom and the criminals did not steal anything from the house, said Ndolo. Dhilon was not married.
