Delhi Police have arrested two men wanted in three murder cases, two of them reported in March and July this year. The police identified them as sharp shooters of the Sunil alias Tillu gang. Naresh Kumar alias Sonu (29) and Umesh Kumar alias Kala (29), residents of Tajpur Kalan in Delhi, carried a reward of Rs 50,000 each on their arrests.

Additional commissioner of police (crime) Rajiv Ranjan said they got a specific input that the duo would visit Sector 11 in Rohini and cornered them near a technology institute.

Ranjan said members of the Tillu gang had recently murdered one Monu alias Nepali and Satya Prakash alias Babloo of the Gogi gang, their prime rivals. “In retaliation, Gogi executed the murder of one Ravi Bhardwaj and Sunny, both from the Tillu gang,” Ranjan said.

He said Kala and Sonu have past criminal records and were wanted in three murder cases. They had killed one Monu Nepali in March this year in Maurya Enclave and Satya Prakash alias Babloo in July in Ashok Vihar. A murder case was also registered against them of 2015 in Haryana.They had murdered one Niranjan Master in Murthal, the additional commissioner added.

In addition to the three murder cases, the two men are wanted in a Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) case of June 2018, police said.

Ranjan said, Kala murdered one Arun alias Commando of the Gogi gang. Kala is involved in four cases of murder. He is one of the closest associates of Tillu, who is in jail. Kala was involved in five cases of murder and attempt to murder and a cash reward of R 50,000 was declared by Delhi Police on his arrest.

“In 2008, Sonu tried to kill one Samunder Bhardwaj because of some family enmity. Bhardwaj survived the attack. Sonu is also previously involved in another attempt to murder case,” the officer said.
