The Dwarka unit of anti-auto theft squad (AATS) of Delhi Po­lice ar­rested a mur­der con­vict, who had jumped pa­role, af­ter a brief en­counter. The con­vict Mo­hit Wad­hwa (30), a res­i­dent of His­sar in Haryana, was serv­ing life im­pris- on­ment in a 2006 mur­der case. He was out on pa­role but went ab­scond­ing in 2016.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, Mo­hit had gone to Sec­tor-20 of Dwarka to meet his as­so­ciate. On re­al­is­ing that he had been cor­nered by the po­lice, he took out a pis­tol and tried to fire at the po­lice team, but was nabbed. The pis­tol was loaded with three live rounds of 7.65mm bul­lets. He has been booked un­der Arms Act, said Dwarka district DCP Alto Alphonso.

Ac­cord­ing to him, the AATS re­ceived in­for­ma­tion that a con­vict who had jumped pa­role will visit his as­so­ciate in Dwarka. A team led by In­spec­tor Raj Ku­mar laid a trap and swooped in on him when he reached the venue at around 7.15 pm. Mo­hit told the po­lice that he had been liv­ing as a tenant in Dwarka Mor for the past few months and was runnning out of money , hence he and his as­socites planned to com­mit rob­bery to sus­tain him­self while hid­ing from the po­lice.
