Gogi carried a reward of ₹6.5 lakh, was arrested from Gurugram

The Capital’s most wanted criminal, who was carrying a reward of ₹6.5 lakh on his head, was arrested along with his three accomplices from Gurugram on Tuesday, police said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Manishi Chandra said that the criminal Jitender Maan alias Gogi was arrested along with Kuldeep alias Fajja, Kapil alias Gaurav and Rohit alias Moi from an apartment complex.

Before he surrendered before the police, Gogi recorded a video saying that he has been surrounded by police and might get killed in an encounter because of which he is surrendering. Sources said that after the arrest when he was asked why he made the video, he said that he was anticipating a “Shootout at Lokhandwala’ [Bollywood film] style encounter because of sirens and lights pointing at them.

Police said that they were on the trail of Gogi, Fajja and Gaurav for a long time. “Police got a tip-off on the intervening night of Monday and Tuesday and visited Kherki Daula Toll Plaza in Gurugram. When police reached the toll plaza, they got information that Gogi, along with his gang members, was residing in a flat at Mapsko Casabella, Sector-82, Gurugram,” Mr. Chandra said.

The officials were accompanied by a SWAT team and they moved towards Gogi’s flat. Police surrounded the B-4 block. Finding no escape route, they surrendered before the police. The operation lasted about 30 minutes.

Delhi and Haryana police had announced a reward of ₹4 lakh and ₹2.5 lakh, respectively on Gogi’s arrest. Fajja carried a reward of ₹2 lakh on his head announced by Delhi Police.

Rohit carried a reward of ₹2 lakh from the Delhi Police and ₹1 lakh from the Haryana Police. Kapil, is the new member of the gang, said the police.

Six imported pistols, over 70 live cartridges and a stolen car were recovered from their possession, police said.
