The Delhi Police’s Special Cell have arrested a member of Jitender Mann ‘Gogi’’s gang on Friday, while he was conducting a recce to murder a rival gang member.

The accused has been identified as Piyush Barela, alias Sunny, 20. The police have recovered live cartridges from him.

The Special Cell had received information that Rohit, alias Moi, and Monu Dagar — key members of the ‘Gogi’ gang — were planning to murder a rival gangster with the help of some newly inducted members. Further investigations revealed Barela’s name as the new member. The police also came to know that he had been supplied with illegal weapons by other gang members, to carry out the murder, DCP (Special Cell) Manoj C said.

The DCP added that Piyush had discontinued his studies after passing class IX from a Delhi-based school and had begun searching for a job. “When he could not find any, out of frustration, he started getting involved in illegal activities and gradually came in contact with gang members, including Rohit and Monu Dagar,” he said.
