Fugitive escapes: Shokeen won’t join probe before Feb 1

A day after Baghpat police summoned former Delhi MLA Rambir Shokeen to join investigation for his alleged involvement in helping the notorious criminal—Amit Malik alias Bhura get an easy escape from police custody with the help of Sunil Rathi gang in the recent past, he informed police that he could not join investigation till February 1.

Speaking to Millennium Post, JK Sahi, SSP Baghpat said, “On Tuesday morning we have received an application from Shokeen alleging that he is presently out of town. He would return on February 1 and on the same day he will join the investigation to record the statement.”

Shokeen is the uncle of Neeraj and Pankaj Bawana, members of Neeraj Bawana gang. According to the revelation made by the recently arrested persons who helped Bhura in escaping from police custody on December 15, it came to light that the conspiracy was hatched at Shokeen’s office in outer Delhi. On late Monday night, Delhi Police Special Cell had arrested the fifth accused, identified as Arvind Rohilla. He was arrested from Subhash Nagar and the two AK-47 rifles that were robbed from the police team, have also been recovered.

Interestingly, Delhi police have arrested all the five accused who helped Bhura in escaping and interrogated each one of them, but failed to question Shokeen despite the accused revealed his involvement in the case. In spite of questioning him, the senior police officials of Special Cell have informed Baghpat police about the revelation and handed over them to Baghpat police.

It seems that the tainted background of Shokeen and his recent high-voltage drama have scared Special cell officers. In March, a raid was also conducted at Shokeen’s house to nab Pankaj but to no avail. However, Shokeen created a high-voltage drama and said that Delhi Police had illegally conducted a raid at his residence and when he asked them to show a search warrant, they misbehaved with him and his wife.

On December 15, when Bhura was taken to Baghpat court for a hearing in a murder case, three persons in SUV overtook the police vehicle and opened fired. The two accused sitting inside the police van threw pepper on policemen and managed to escape with Bhura.

Bhura has 40 cases registered against him in Delhi, Haryana, UP, Punjab and Uttrakhand and a reward of Rs 10 lakh has also announced been announced against his arrest.
