Robbers to be booked under stringent Act
The south district police will book the Green Park robbers under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act, reports Karan Choudhury.delhi Updated: Jan 22, 2009 00:09 IST
The south district police will book the Green Park robbers under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). The alleged gang leader, Satya Prakash alias Satte, already has a MCOCA case registered against him at Seemapuri in northeast Delhi.
Delhi Police have identified “three snooker joints” in south Delhi where these gang members met and chalked out their strategies. Police are raiding these joints to gather more evidence into the case.
In a serious revelation, the police have also identified some employees at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) who had connived with Kuldeep Singh alias Sonu, a resident of South Extension, to prepare forged medical documents for druglord Sharafat Sheikh.
“It is a serious issue that some AIIMS employees were hand-in-glove with Sonu and were helping him prepare medical documents for Sharafat Sheikh through which he came out of jail on parole earlier. We have identified these employees and would be booking them soon,” said a senior police officer. Sonu was looking after Sheikh’s family and he was preparing medical
documents to bring him out of jail.
Police were also conducting raids at several hideouts of Kanwaljeet Singh alias Bittu, who is out on bail. He is apparently a close associate of Satte.
Police said that Satte and Bittu ran an organised gang. Earlier, these were two separate gangs of bus robbers. They merged two years ago and started working as a syndicate. Bittu’s brother Dabbu alias Charanjeet Singh is lodged in Tihar where he came in touch with Sharafat Sheikh. Sonu was an old accomplice of Sheikh and he came in touch with Satte through Bittu.
