Parihar gang 'split'is part of strategy

DACOIT GANG leader Jagjeevan Parihar, operating in MP and UP, is reported to have split his gang into two parts so that in case of an encounter with police the entire gang was not wiped out. The Gadariya gang has also done this. However, Parihar, as part of his strategy, is trying to mislead the police by spreading rumour that he has expelled his younger brother Param Singh from the gang because Param kidnapped and married a girl, knowledgeable sources said.

DACOIT GANG leader Jagjeevan Parihar, operating in MP and UP, is reported to have split his gang into two parts so that in case of an encounter with police the entire gang was not wiped out. The Gadariya gang has also done this. However, Parihar, as part of his strategy, is trying to mislead the police by spreading rumour that he has expelled his younger brother Param
Singh from the gang because Param kidnapped and married a girl, knowledgeable sources said.

Kidnapping of the girl from village Chidoli and marrying her with his brother Param Singh; later on, kidnapping seven villagers and then spreading the rumour that he has expelled his brothers Bharat Singh and Param Singh is only a part of strategy to mislead the police and the Kshatriya community.

The fact is that Parihar was also present in the marriage of his brother Param Singh with the kidnapped girl Rachna Chauhan, and even fired in air from his AK-47 rifle as a mark of jubilation.

The recent kidnapping of seven villagers from Rampura village district Jalaun of Uttar Pradesh is also a part of his strategy to create terror in the ravines of Chambal and Yamuna, like Gadariya gang, and make kidnapping the main source of his income.

In order to misguide the police, Parihar has spread the rumour that his gang is split in two parts, but according to sources after learning a lesson from the death of dacoit Nirbhay Gurjar, Parihar deliberately divided the gang in two parts.

Parihar also came into conflict with the Kshatriya community when he kidnapped a 17-year-old Rachna Chauhan and married her to his brother Param Singh. In this connection, a Maha Panchayat of the Kshatriya community in the ravines of Sakat Pura Chorela near Chakar Nagar was organised to sort out the issue.

Parihar also attended the meeting with his three associates, but despite prolonged discussion, the Maha Panchayat could not produce any result.

The Kshatriya community tried its bet to rescue Rachna from Parihar gang but could not succeed. According to sources, Parihar later spread rumour that he has expelled Param. This was to mislead the police and the Kshatriya community both. The command of one gang is in the hands of Parihar and that of the other in the hands of Param Singh.
