The Delhi Police has succeeded in arresting a wanted criminal who was allegedly involved in robbery cases and also wanted in cases of attempt to murder. DCP (Southeast) Romil Baaniya said police recovered one sophisticated pistol of .765 MM along with six live cartridges from his possession after they got information that the criminal would be coming to Okhla Mandi to meet his associate.
The 28-year-old man was arrested at 5.30 pm in Okhla Mandi.
“During interrogation, the accused told police that since he was poor in studies, he started wrestling in Rajkumar’s Akhara in Gonda, Delhi. Meanwhile, he started working as PSO to a local financier of the area. He also started working as a recovery agent of financers which brought him in contact with some local goons,” the officer said.
He became a financier himself and started financing people like autowalas and daily vendors. “He used to be troubled by a gang comprising Kamaljeet, Charanjeet brothers and Dharambir who allegedly used to extort money from him. When conflict arose between Dharambir and Charanjit, Yoginder joined Dharambir gang and started extortion and committing robberies,” he added.
“On October 25, Dharambir, Yoginder and their other associates planned to kill their rival Kamaljit and fired indiscriminately on him in Shahdara. However, Kamaljit survived and was admitted to GTB hospital. “They even dared to go to the extent to enter the GTB hospital disguising as doctors to kill Kamaljit in the hospital. He was motivated by watching the Hindi film Vaastav,” said the officer as reported by the Indian Express.
The man is an active associate of Dharambir of Trans Yamuna.
