4 criminals arrested after brief encounter with Gurugram police
Gurugram: Four notorious criminals, including three carrying cash rewards on their heads, have been arrested by the Gurugram Police in an encounter early on Wednesday.
Three of the accused sustained bullet injuries and have been admitted to hospital.
The four have been identified as Lokesh, Sanju, Pradeep and Neeraj, said sources. While one of them carried a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh on his head, the other two carried cash rewards of Rs50,000 each.
The Gurugram Police's Palam Vihar Crime Branch team laid a trap on Dwarka Expressway following a tip-off and arrested the four following a brief encounter.
"Three of them sustained bullet injuries and have been admitted to the Civil Hospital. The injuries caused are not serious," said Gurugram Police spokesperson Subhash Boken. He said the accused belonged to Najafgarh in Delhi and Haryana's Sonipat district.
They were allegedly involved in several cases of a heinous crime, including murder, attempt to murder and robbery, in Haryana and neighbouring Delhi.
A case has been registered at Rajindra Park police station in this connection. It is important to note that even though their heads are lodged up in jail their henchmen continue to carry their nefarious activities.
Besides the main gangs, there are also various small gangs that have ensured law and order challenge in the city.
A whopping amount of Rs12 crores was recovered from the busting of 53 gangs by Gurugram police last year. Some of these gang members in the process also resulted in the exchange of gunshots between the officials and the culprits.
Police sources in the Crime Branch maintain that there has been a reduction in the dangers posed by the deadly gangs of Gurugram since most of their leaders have either been eliminated or arrested.
However, the sources also conceded that the danger from the gangs and their members has still not fully been removed.
