Four persons arrested for allegedly raping two women at Mandpura village in Haryana’s Pataudi have reportedly admitted to their involvement in the sensational Mewat rapes and double murders, the Jewar gang rape and robbery and the Bulandshahr highway gang rape case,Gurgaon police said.

The Gurgaon police said the four men said they were involved in almost 150 crimes, include rape, murder and dacoity in Delhi-NCR and neighbouring states.

The rape in Mewat’s Dingarheri happened on August 24, 2016, the Jewar case on May 25, 2017 and the highway gang rape case in Dostpur village in Bulandshahr on July 29, 2016.

The four are Dharmu alias Lucky (20) and Munna alias Ayaan (20), both from Delhi, Lambu alias Tulli alias Vinay (31) from Ballabhgarh and Rajbir alias Nahar Singh (20) of Jhajjar district in Haryana. Singh is the alleged kingpin and carries a reward of Rs5,000.

They were arrested on September 13 and their interrogation revealed their alleged involvement in many murder and rape cases, police said.

On January 28, two women were allegedly raped and robbed inside their residence outside Mandpura village by the men who posed as police officers.

Gurgaon police commissioner Sandeep Khirwar said they admitted to their involvement in heinous crimes in Delhi and NCR, including some major cases. “As some of the cases are being investigated by other agencies, their role will be established and confirmed by them, but our teams have got serious leads,” he said.

Gurgaon police forwarded their confession statements to the CBI, which is investigating the Dingarheri and Bulandshahr cases, and UP Police, which is investigating the Jewar case.

According to sources in the CBI, the agency has moved a local court seeking custody of the four men. The matter has been posted for October 30.

Inspector Yashwant Singh, part of the special investigation team, said the CBI team investigating the Bulandshahr case had recently taken blood samples of the suspects to conduct a DNA test to corroborate their confessions.

The police confirmed their involvement in over 150 cases in Nagaur, Jaipur, Amer, Alwar, Kotputli, Behror, Nimrana, Aligarh, Bulandshahr, Muradabad, Gautam Budh Nagar, Noida, Ghaziabad, Mewat, Rewari, Gurgaon, Mahendergarh, Pataudi and adjoining areas.

The police said the four men were also involved in a murder in Manesar in October 2016.

In the Jewar incident, eight members of a family were travelling to Bulandshahr from Greater Noida’s Jewar when they were waylaid by the gang around 1.30am. Four women were raped and the family was robbed. On July 23, Gautam Budh Nagar police arrested four members of the Bawaria gang for the crime.

In the Bulandshahr case, a 35-year-old woman and her daughter, 13, from Ghaziabad were raped by six to seven persons in fields along national highway 91. The men were tied up and held at gunpoint.

In November last year, the CBI had filed a chargesheet against Saleem Bawariya, Zuber and Sajid in this case after they were arrested by the Uttar Pradesh police.
