Police welcome the NSW Government’s reward of $100,000 for information relating to the murder of a service station employee on Christmas Eve in 1999.

About 5.20am on 24 December 1999, Sanjay Kumar Roy was working as a console operator at the Mobil Service Station on The Kingsway, Woolooware, when a man armed with a shotgun entered the store.

The 31-year-old Indian National was shot and killed during the incident.

Police from Miranda Local Area Command established Strike Force Polesworth to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
