In May 2018, his gang had robbed a jeweller Partap Maratha in the Guru Bazaar area after shooting his employee Mukesh Kumar. Similarly, he was also a part of the mid-September 2018 robbery, in which a jeweller Prem Kumar was robbed of gold ornaments and diamond jewellery worth Rs2 to Rs3 crore.

Other proclaimed offenders arrested by the police include a ‘drug peddler’ Rohit, alias Chiniya; Avtar Singh, alias Sonu; and Suraj, alias Chucha.
