The Uttar Pradesh special task force (UP-STF) on Friday arrested three members, reportedly of the Anil Dujana gang, who were allegedly involved in a bid to eliminate rivals belonging to Sundar Bhati’s gang.
Anil Dujana and Sundar Bhati are gangsters who were involved in several cases of murder, kidnap, robbery and looting. Both are currently behind bars.
According to the police, Ankit of Etawah, Babbal of Ghaziabad and Vishal Rawat of Hathras were planning to kill two members of Sundar Bhati’s gang. The accused have eight cases of murder, attempt to murder, robbery and theft against them names in several districts, including Gautam Budh Nagar and Ghaziabad.
“For over a decade, members of both gangs have resorted to looting iron bars from trucks on highways to make a quick buck. It is because of this rivalry that both groups have locked horns for supremacy and are trying to gain the upper hand,” said Raj Kumar Mishra, deputy superintendent of police, STF.
“It was upon information that the three accused from Anil Dujana gang had planned to attack Sundar Bhati gang that we traced and arrested them in Dankaur. A case was also registered against them,” Mishra said.
Officials said that rivalry between the two gangs for supremacy in looting iron bars had led to the murder of one Harender and a police personnel in 2015 in Dadupur area of Greater Noida. Then, the police had arrested members of Anil Dujana gang.
Dujana is presently behind bars in Maharajganj while his arch-rival Sundar Bhati is lodged in Banda jail. It is because of growing rivalry and gang war, which has so far led to a number of murders and bloodshed, that the state officials decided to lodge them in different jails and away from the NCR.
