Hunt on to nab J&K's woman gangster
22-year-old Bindu played a key role in the murder of underworld don Bakra, reports Zorawar Singh Jamwal.Updated: Dec 07, 2006 13:01 IST
Twentytwo-year-old Ambika alias Bindu has become the first girl to allegedly join the crime world of Jammu and Kashmir by playing a key role in the sensational murder of underworld don Sanjay Gupta alias Bakra.
In the morning of November 25, gangsters Rajesh Dogra alias Mohan and Vishal Thakur alias Vicky Thakur gunned down Bakra when the latter entered the premises of the house of a senior government doctor in posh Trikuta Nagar area in Jammu.
Within 24 hours after the incident, police investigations indicated involvement of a girl that sent shockwaves through the locality, people wondering how a girl could bepart of such a heinous act.
Police said, "The mystery was solved within four days with prime accused Rajesh Dogra alias Mohan and Vishal Thakur alias Vicky Thakur who were nabbed in New Delhi disclosing the name of the girl Ambika alias Bindu."
“The girlfriend of another co-accused Kapil, Ambika, was motivated by him to come in contact with Bakra so that the deceased could come out alone to meet her. After calling Bakra, she left the area in a mini-bus and later reached Dalhousie in Himachal Pradesh to re-join the accused and co-accused there," police sources disclosed. They added that from the questioning of the father of Ambika, Subash Chander, son of late Hans Raj and presently living in a colony in Talab Tillo, it looks that this gang used to threaten the family members of Ambika whenever they did not allow her to move out of the house."
"Coming from a lower middle class family, Ambika, despite objections from the family members, remained in touch with the criminals. She used to give a slip to the family members while moving outside the house on the pretext that she was visiting her classmate’s house. However, she continued to meet Kapil and other co-accused who had hatched a conspiracy to murder Bakra," sources in the investigating team observed.
Ambika is now part of the dark streets of the crime world and police are conducting raids at all suspected hideouts to apprehend her and her boyfriend Kapil along with other two co-accused Palla and Deepu.
