Sources in the police were quoted by the report as saying that since then, criminal gangs from Mewat (Haryana) and the surrounding areas have become active in Delhi, especially in the southern and outer areas of the city.
Earlier this month, a 38-year-old gangster who was on the radar of the police forces of several states including Uttar Pradesh and Delhi - was arrested following a brief shootout in Delhi.
