These were the men that the underworld gangs would source out their jobs to when they wanted someone out of their way.


Since March 1, the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) has arrested a group of eight men who carried out killings for several gangs, including Chhota Rajan and Ravi Pujari.

Rakesh Maria, additional director general, ATS, said the gang used its own men and weapons to carry out the activities. "When a job was outsourced to the group, the members would plan and execute the task from beginning to end," Maria said.

On a tip-off, the ATS arrested Vijay Vasant Kedari, 37, his brother Nitin, 42, and Vinod Shetty, 35, on March 1 from near Sewri Municipal School.

On March 3, Sunil Balkrishna Shetty, 26, was arrested from a bar in Panvel. Rakesh Shetty, 32, was caught the next day from Koparkhairane, while Rajesh Machindra Pardeshi, 34, Navin Pujari, 31, and Kishore Angre alias Anu Angre, 29, were arrested on March 6 from Matunga near Hanuman Hotel.
