Did gangs of Delhi choose election time to settle old scores ?
New Delhi: When the whole country was gripped by election fever and Delhi was speculating the result of the election after it went to polls on May 12, there was a sudden surge in the shooting spree across the capital especially in the areas like Dwarka, Najafgarh and Rohini.
There have been three major shootouts in Delhi within a span of 10 days which killed 3 and injured at least two. The daring daylight shootouts threw the cops into a tizzy and left the people of the capital scared on busy Delhi roads.
The question is whether the Delhi gangs and mafias deliberately choose Election time to settle scores? Though security is at the highest level during the election time but seems like the criminals thought the cops are having busy time with the elections and counting preparations which might give them some time to hide or abscond.
However, the bravery of a Delhi police constable Naresh Kumar did save some embarrassment for Delhi Police after the 56-year-old shot dead a criminal Vikas Dalal in the Dwarka Mor shootout. The shootout under the Dwarka Mor metro station created a filmy gangwar scene where gangsters opened heavy fire on a car killing one gangster in the process on a busy road on May 19.
Two days prior to this incident a car was intercepted at Rohini road and a man named Manish was fired upon multiple times. A business rivalry and a previous murder was said to be the motive behind the attack. Later, a gym Trainer and Tik Tok sensation Mohit Mor was shot multiple times in Delhi's Najafgarh by three, one of them a juvenile. Mohit's murder was related to a land dispute and money transaction between him and gangsters.
A day after the Lok Sabha election counting, six men fire indiscriminately on a man in Delhi's Jahangirpuri. The man luckily survived after he was grazed by a bullet.
