Sandeep Gadoli, a dreaded gangster from Gurgaon charged with a string of murders who kept the police on their toes for over two decades, was seriously injured in a shootout in Mumbai on Sunday.
Gadoli opened fire at two Gurgaon Police constables when they arrived at a hotel in east Mumbai’s Andheri around 11 am to arrest the gangster. All three injured people have been admitted to hospital.
Gadoli carried a cash reward of Rs 1.25 Lakh on his head and was wanted in connection with several murders, including the killing of municipal councilor Binder Gujjar’s driver in October 2015.
Police said Gadoli had 36 cases registered against him. His aide, Sonu, was arrested last year in Mumbai for sexually harassing a model in Bandra.
Reports suggest top Gurgaon Police officers collected millions of rupees every month in kickbacks from Gadoli, to turn a blind eye to a flourishing extortion racket that targeted prominent businessmen.
