Two contract killers of Satish Chaudhary gang arrested
New Delhi, June 29 (UNI) Police arrested two inter-state 'supari' killers of the Satish Chaudhary gang this morning after a brief encounter in Malviya Nagar area of South Delhi this morning.
Ravinder Dahiya (27) and his associate Karamvir alias Sonu (21) were arrested while they were on their way to Chirag Dilli to eliminate witnesses related to an old murder case, DCP (South) Anil Shukla told mediapersons.
''Both belonging to the gang of Satish Chaudhary, who was recently gunned down by the Special Cell in an encounter, were asked to stop by the waiting team in Malviya Nagar but they fired at the police party. In return fire, Dahiya was shot in the leg. Soon they were chased and overpowered.'' They were involved in more than 16 cases of murder, kidnapping for ransom and car robberies. A .32 bore 'Breta' pistol and six cartridges were recovered from them. The pistol was reportedly used in the killing of J P Pehalwan in February this year, he said.
''An ace shooter Dahiya, who had killed a Block Pramukh Bhupinder Yadav in Etah, along with his driver Pappu, had recently escaped from Haryana Police custody and the police were trailing him ever since as he had threatened to eliminate several eye witnesses in Malviya Nagar area.'' Investigations have established their involvement in several cases in Delhi and NCR region, Mr Shukla added.
