After almost a month's hunt for Raju Gehlot, who allegedly killed and then dumped a woman's body in a bag at a railway station, the Delhi Police have announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for any information regarding him.
Police said since the murder of Neetu Solanki was linked to Gehlot, he has been on the run.
Gehlot (30) allegedly murdered Solanki and left her body in a bag near New Delhi Railway Station on February 11. Delhi police commissioner BK Gupta announced the reward on Thursday.
"The reward is for Rs 50,000 and it will hold good for a period of one year with immediate effect for anyone who may give any information about the accused," said a senior police officer.
Police described Gehlot as 5 feet 7 inches tall wheatish complexioned male. Gehlot's alleged involvement in the crime came to light after the arrest of his relative Naveen Shokeen, who sheltered (Gehlot) after the murder.
Solanki's body was found outside the railway station in a travelling bag. But the victim could be identified only after her father approached the police on February 23.
"We received information that Gehlot was in touch with his various relatives and getting logistic support from them. We zeroed in on Shokeen who stays in Nangloi," added the officer.
