A 29-year-old history-sheeter, carrying a reward of Rs 15,000 on his head, was arrested in Outer Delhi, police said on Tuesday.

Vikrant, a resident of Baghpat in Uttar Pradesh, was apprehended from Rohini Sector-3 recently when he had gone there to meet a property dealer to fix some deal, DCP (Special Cell) Arun Kampani revealed on Tuesday.

Vikrant is a history-sheeter of Khekra police station in Madhya Pradesh, which has declared a reward of Rs 15,000 for information leading to his arrest.

He is allegedly involved in murders, attempt to murders, kidnapping, robberies and possessing illegal arms. At least nine cases have been registered against him, including four in Delhi.

"In 1999, while he was pursuing his graduation from Delhi University, he injured one of his class fellows and was arrested for attempt to murder.

“Four years later, he was again arrested here in cases of murder and robbery," Kampani said.

In 2009, due to personal enmity, he committed double murder in Daurala (Uttar Pradesh) and was arrested later.

"While he was on the run, he stayed at Indore and was associated with robbers who committed a sensational robbery of Rs 20 lakh from Sujalpur in Madhya Pradesh," Kampani said.
