A team of Special Cell, Northern Range, led by Inspector Puran Pant, under the supervision of Manoj Dixit, ACP arrested Vicky alias Boxer, 28, living at Chankya Puri, Sheela bypass,Rohtak, HR. He was a sharp shooter of Ashok Pradhan gang and was carrying a reward of Rs 50,000 from Haryana Police on his arrest.
There is a long history of gang war in Nazafgarh, Alipur and adjoining areas of Delhi. Jitender alias Gogi gang is one amongst the desperate gangs having on-going rivalry with Sunil alias Tillu gang. Both the gang members keep on roping in new recruits and also members of other gangs. It is learnt through sources, that as of now, Ashok Pradhan has joined hands with Gogi gang and roped in Vicky for firing on a sympathizers of opposite gang in Najafgarh area. This information was further developed and it was established that one Vicky has jumped the interim bail in a sensational murder case of a student of Jat College, Rohtak and a reward of Rs. 50,000 was declared for his arrest by Haryana Police. Hence, he has joined hands with Ashok Pradhan for threatening the witnesses in his murder case.
Regular efforts were made to nab Vicky, Ashok Pradhan and their other absconding associates. Number of raids were conducted in Delhi/NCR, Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan, but on some occasions they narrowly escaped the police net.
Finally, on Oct. 27 at about 4 pm, acting on specific information that Ashok Pradhan and Vicky will come at Dwarka side, near ganda nala, Mohan Garden, Delhi to meet some of their close aides, a raiding party was constituted and moved to the spot. The team identified Vicky who was wandering restlessly near ganda nala and eagerly waiting for someone. After a long wait at about 6:10 pm, when neither Ashok Pradhan, nor any other aide turned up to meet him, he started retracting from the spot, but was successfully apprehended by the team members from the spot. One loaded semi-automatic country made pistol with two live rounds was recovered from his possession. A case under Arms Act has been registered at Police Station, Special Cell, Delhi in this regard.
On interrogation, Vicky further disclosed that he joined hands with Ashok Pradhan to eliminate or terrorize the witnesses in his murder case so as to turn witnesses hostile and compromise the matter. In return, he has to help Ashok Pradhan in identifying and tracing one Sunil Kumar of Najafgarh or Bahadurgarh side, whom Ashok Pradhan suspected to be a sympathizer of their rivals.
He has previously been arrested in nine cases including a murder case.
