NEW DELHI: Wanted gang­ster Sonu Daryapur on Thurs­day morn­ing was ar­rested by Spe­cial Cell of Delhi Police from Narela.

The cops were hunt­ing for him and also an­nounced cash re­ward of Rs five lakh for his ar­rest who killed Monu Daryapur, his per­sonal se­cu­rity of­fi­cer and one more man in a shootout in April this year.

He was named as Satyawan Sehrawat but soon be­came in­fa­mous with the name of Sonu Daryapur when he stepped into crime in 2000.

He was wanted in more than 10 cases of mur­der, ex­tor­tion, ab­duc­tion, arms act, in­clud­ing the sen­sa­tional 2006 mur­der case of Pun­jabi Bagh and April’s ‘Triple Mur­der’ case of Mian­wali Na­gar in Delhi.

At least six ac­cused per­sons of this triple mur­der case have al­ready been ar­rested by Spe­cial Cell on ear­lier oc­ca­sion.

How­ever, the mas­ter­mind, Sonu Daryapur, con­tin­ued to dodge the police to evade ar­rest.

A team of Spe­cial Cell has been work­ing for last few months to ar­rest Sonu Daryapur.

The teams were sent to dif­fer­ent places in Hi­machal Pradesh, Pun­jab, Ra­jasthan, and Ut­tar Pradesh to ap­pre­hend the ac­cused.

On Septem­ber 13, a spe­cific in­for­ma­tion was re­ceived by police that Sonu is in Hi­machal Pradesh and is leav­ing for Delhi.

The police team was de­ployed at strate­gic lo­ca­tions in cars and mo­tor­cy­cles to nab the ac­cused.

Around 5 am, staff de­ployed on the mo­tor­cy­cle at Singhu Bor­der in­formed that the Sonu Daryapur is spot­ted and driv­ing a white color i20 car and head­ing to­wards Delhi from Haryana side.

The car was iden­ti­fied and was blocked by the team­mates wait­ing in the cars near NIT road, Narela.

Sonu could not find any way to es­cape and im­me­di­ately fired two bul­lets on the police party from his pis­tol, but luck­ily no one was in­jured. He was soon over­pow­ered.

“He con­fessed his in­volve­ment in the mur­der of one Chand in Bhi­wani, Haryana in the year, 2009 and mur­der of Sud­hir Ku­mar, brother of Bhu­pen­der at Na­jaf­garh, in 2009. He fur­ther dis­closed his in­volve­ment in mur­ders of San­jay Sarpanch of Soni­pat, and mur­der of Jas­bir of Narela,” said DCP Spe­cial cell San­jeev Ya­dav.
