Police raids hideouts of two criminals involved in Dwarka shootout

New Delhi, May 20

A day after two criminals were killed in a shootout between rival gangs beneath the Dwarka Mor Metro Station in southwest Delhi, several teams have been formed to nab the two "criminals" who fled the spot, a police official said today.

The deceased gangsters - Parveen Gehlot, a resident of Nawada, and Vikas Dalal - had several cases of murders, extortion and robberies registered against them in Delhi and Haryana, he said.

Dalal was on the run after escaping from the Haryana Police's custody in 2018.

The Delhi Police teams are raiding at several locations in Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and other neigbhouring states to track the absconding shooters.

One of the accused is suspected to be Surya - a member of the Manjeet Mahal gang, the official said.

After the shootout, both the accused fled in a black car bearing Rajasthan registration number. Police are scanning through the CCTV cameras installed in and around the scene of crime to trace the locations of the car. — PTI
