Mastermind of Ashok Vihar businessman murder arrested

NEW DELHI: The Crime Branch of Delhi Police on Wednesday said that they have arrested a most wanted and dreaded inter-state gangster, Rajesh Kumar, alias Raju, who was wanted for a robbery and murder case at Delhi's Ashok Vihar police station.
The accused, a resident of Haryana's Kaithal district, had earlier escaped twice from police custody in Haryana and Punjab, while being produced in the court in his cases.
A cash reward of Rs 50,000 had been announced for his arrest in the Ashok Vihar murder case by Delhi Police.
27-year-old Rajesh was arrested on Tuesday, around 4 pm, from near the Ring Road Mall at Sector-3, Rohini, Delhi.
On sensing that a police team was approaching him, Rajesh took out a loaded country-made pistol to fire at them. However, he was overpowered by the police team and apprehended.
On August 22, Rajesh's gang followed Sanjiv Gajwani, (42), a resident of Ashok Vihar, Phase-II, Delhi, on their bikes from his hosiery factory at Shastri Nagar to his house in Ashok Vihar.
Gajwani was travelling on his scooty and carrying a bag containing cash.
As soon as Sanjiv parked his scooty in front of his house, Rajesh jumped on him and tried to snatch away his bag.
When Sanjiv resisted, Surya shot him 3 times at point blank range.
Sanjiv fell down and the gang escaped on their bikes taking the bag containing cash Rs 4.15 along with them.
The entire incident was helplessly witnessed by Sanjiv's elder brother Ashok, who was standing on the house balcony.
"In the month of September 2017, both first timers, Dalip and Sanjay were apprehended by Ashok Vihar police. However, the main accused, Surya and his associate Ravi were never caught. Delhi Police headquarters had announced a cash reward of Rs. 50,000 for their arrest." said Joy Tirkey, DCP Crime.
