Gurugram, January 16

The police have nabbed three most-wanted criminals who are members of slain gangster Ashok Rathi’s gang. All three were involved in the murder of Alipur village sarpanch Manoj in July last year.

Two of them were carrying a bounty of Rs 1 lakh each on their heads. Five pistols, four country made pistols, two mobile phones and a wi-fi dongle has been seized from them.

The accused were identified as Bharat (20), a native of Kosi Kalan in Mathura district (UP), Mohit (27) and Punit (24), residents of Ballabgarh in Faridabad district.

In a joint operation, crime units from Sector 17, Sector 39 and Sector 40 nabbed the trio from different areas in the city. They confessed that they are members of Ashok Rathi gang.

After Rathi’s murder, they got to know that Manoj was involved in the murder of Rathi and decided to eliminate him.

“This is a big catch for us as they were trying to murder seven persons. The accused revealed that they were planning to kill one person in Dighal, one in Faridabad, one in Sondhi village, one in Alipur and three persons in Patli village. Bharat and Mohit were carrying bounty of Rs 1 lakh each on their heads,” said Preet Pal Singh Sangwan, ACP crime.

After the arrest of the trio, the number of persons arrested for Manoj’s murder has risen to seven. Four persons were nabbed last year.
