The family of gangster Sandeep Gadoli was in the city to claim his body, six months after the Gurgaon police shot him down at a hotel in Andheri.

The family had refused to accept his body earlier, demanding the arrest of the cop responsible for killing him.

Gadoli’s family received his body on Thursday evening, which they will be taking to Gurgaon on Friday morning to conduct his final rites.

Gadoli’s sister Sudesh, speaking to HT, said, “My mother is unwell in Gurgaon so we want her to see Sandeep’s body before his funeral.”

The SIT has been successful in arresting six persons that includes four policemen along with his girlfriend Divya Pahuja and her mother Sonia. Sudesh further said, “We are not happy with the SIT’s interrogations as they have not arrested Manoj Gujjar, who is the mastermind. The SIT has claimed that my brother had killed police sub-inspector Pradhyman’s brother in 1999 which is not true at all.”

The family alleged that Gujjar, brother of rival gangster-turned-municipal councillor Binder Gujjar, bribed the Gurgaon police to kill Gadoli.

Sudesh further added, “Gujjar paid the police to kill my brother. The ACP, DCP and even the CP is involved in the conspiracy and I wish to see everyone in jail. We named 11 people in the FIR after the Supreme Court ordered the SIT to note the FIR on the basis of our complaint, but they have named just eight, of which two are yet to be arrested.”
