The Crime Branch of the Delhi Police has arrested three notorious gangsters involved in various crimes in Gurgaon.
The gangsters — Rakesh Yadav (24), Neeraj Chaudhary (25) and Anil Yadav (25) — were caught on Saturday evening.
According to the police, Rakesh Yadav is involved in as many as nine cases of murder, attempt to murder and extortion. The other two are involved in two criminal cases each.
"We had information that the trio would be meeting an associate near the Kalka Mandir area in South Delhi. We caught them around 4:00 p.m. on Saturday," said a senior police officer.
The police recovered a country-made pistol and a few rounds from their possession. They have also impounded a Mahindra Scorpio car in which they were traveling. The police were yet to verify if the car was stolen or not.
According to the police, they had come to the city in search of a hideout. "They are wanted in Gurgaon. The Gurgaon Police had announced a reward of Rs. 25, 000 for Rakesh Yadav. They wanted to shift their base to Delhi," said a senior police officer. The Gurgaon police was also informed about the arrest.
