Raju Gehlot dodge cops till his last breath
NEW DELHI: He breathed his last but the Delhi Police couldn't get a whiff of their one of the most unsolved murder mystery's prime accused till he was alive.
Raju gehlot, the man who was accused of murdering Neetu Solanki whose body was found stuffed in a bag at New Delhi railway station in 2011 died natural death at a Gurugram hospital.
The case gained publicity after a peacock tattoo was found on the abdomen of the deceased girl. She was identified by the family with the help of that tattoo.
However, on June 21, his colleagues brought him to a Gurugram hospital and admitted him with liver ailment.
It was just before his death that he revealed his true identity to his friends and asked them to call his family. He was living with a disguised identity for eight years now and left no trail for Delhi Police to follow.
All these years the family's phone numbers were kept on surveillance but Raju Gehlot was too smart for Delhi Police and never gave a lead.
The movements of the family were tracked but to no avail.

Gehlot and Solanki lived together at a rented accommodation in Hari Nagar, and he had allegedly killed her after a heated argument. A proclaimed offender, he carried a reward of Rs 2 lakh on his head.
According to police, on February 11, the day Solanki's body was found, Gehlot made several calls to his cousin,

Shokeen refused to lend his car, instead of handed him over some money. Solanki then boarded an autorickshaw and went to the New Delhi railway station Paharganj side.
