Dreaded Uttar Pradesh gangster Munna Bajrangi, accused of killing BJP MLA Krishnanand Rai, was arrested by the Delhi Police in Mumbai on Thursday.

A special team of Delhi Police, in coordination with their Mumbai counterparts, nabbed Bajrangi from suburban Malad, a senior Crime Branch official told PTI.

The elusive gangster was staying under a fake name Prem Singh, the officer added.

Munna Bajrangi was accused of killing BJP MLA Krishnanand Rai in November 2005.

Rai, an MLA from Mohammadipur in UP, his police gunman and five others were shot dead at a place about 50 km from Ghazipur district headquarters.

Bajrangi, wanted in several criminal cases in UP, Delhi and few other places, is considered close to Mukhtar Ansari, Rai's rival and alleged gangster-turned Uttar Pradesh MLA.
