Three members of the notorious bikers gang, which allegedly killed five people in four recent attacks, were arrested in the national capital, police said.
Zakir, Rakesh and Mushtaq -- three of the five members of the bikers gang (Bunty gang) -- were arrested from Badarpur area in South Delhi when they went to meet the wife of one of their friends, a senior police officer said.
Two of the gang members, including their leader Om Prakash alias Bunty, is still absconding, the officer said.
The Delhi Police had declared a reward of Rs 50,000 each on the five members of the gang.
The gang has been involved in four shootings mainly in South and East Delhi.
The bikers gang first made news on July five when its members gunned down 25-year-old Sonu, a property dealer, outside his Sangam Vihar residence.
Police said the gang killed two friends - Ashneet Singh (24) and Harjeet Singh (26) - at Amar Colony near Lajpat Nagar nearly two weeks ago. Barely a few minutes later they shot dead 30-year-old Sanjeev Suri near the Andrews Ganj crossing when one of the stolen bikes ran out of fuel.
The very next day the same members of the 'Bunty gang' shot Naresh and Pawan, both around 30, in South Delhi's Dakshinpuri area.
Officials also suspect their role in the robberies at two shops in East Delhi in July.
