Goyal told him that he wanted to work with a person who could help him in land grabbing.The two started working together but later Goyal started avoiding him and stopped giving him his share. This enraged Pradhan and he decided to eliminate Goyal. He was shot seven times, allegedly by two contract killers identified as Rahul and Amit.
