“The police got a tip-off regarding the movement of the accused in the national Capital. Later, a police team laid a trap near Chandgi Ram Akhara red light at Ring Road on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday and apprehended them,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Manishi Chandra said. Loaded firearms, including two zigana and one taurus pistols, and over 70 cartridges were recovered from their possession, the police said, adding that a case under the Arms Act has been registered.

The accused were wanted in several cases, including triple and double murders committed in broad daylight, attempts to murder, extortion, encounter with police and Arms Act in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab and Uttarakhand, the police said.

They had committed a series of crimes in the recent past, acting as a bridge between Lawrence Bishnoi-Kala Jathedi and another infamous wanted gangster of Gurgaon, Sube Gurjar, who is carrying a reward of Rs 7 lakh on his arrest, police said.

After escaping from the custody of the Haryana Police in February 2020, gangster Sandeep alias Kala Jathedi has been working to expend his network in Delhi and adjoining states, they said. — PTI
