New Delhi: A gang of wanted crim­i­nals was busted and three peo­ple were ar­rested af­ter a brief shootout in Na­jaf­garh on Fri­day night. One of the gang­sters had come to his as­so­ciate’s house when cops raided the place. To evade ar­rest, the ac­cused opened fire at the cops, who re­tal­i­ated with two rounds. No one was in­jured in the fir­ing.

Po­lice was tipped off about the gang, who were meet­ing to plot the killing of a close as­soci- ate of gang­ster Man­jit Ma­hal.

DCP (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse said a team, led by ACP Somender Pal Tyagi, was formed to nab Nakul Sang­wan, Tarun, Ro­hit Gehlawat. With their ar­rests, po­lice claimed to have averted a pos­si­ble gang­war.

Nar­rat­ing the in­ci­dent, po­lice said on Novem­ber 20, one of Man­jit Ma­hal’s as­so­ci­ates, Roshan, was killed. To in­ves­ti­gate the case, a team led by in­spec­tor Sunil Ku­mar, SHO Na­jaf­garh, was formed. Fi­nally on Fri­day, cops re­ceived in­forma- tion that a wanted crim­i­nal Vikas alias PK was hid­ing in the house of Kapil Sang­wan, Nakul’s cousin, along with his as­so­ci­ates. On a tip-off, a raid was con­ducted at Sang­wan’s house.

While the po­lice sur­rounded the house, three gang­sters, un­aware of po­lice pres­ence, stepped out in an at­tempt to es­cape. When they saw the po­lice, they opened fire, but no one was hurt. Af­ter a brief strug­gle, all the three ac­cused were ar­rested. How­ever, Vikas was nowhere to be found.
