Why Delhi cops want these 10 men so badly

NEW DELHI: seems to have its task cut out with new names being added to the list of top 10 most . In January, TOI had reported about the first list prepared this year. In the last six months, two of the gangsters have been neutralised, but new names have made it to the list with their daring crimes.

While Jitender remains on top of the list with Special Cell and conducting raids for him in several states, gangster Sandeep is the second most wanted man. Dhillu escaped from police custody under a hail of bullets fired by his men when he was brought to Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Science for check-up in February. He has been off the radar since. Police suspect he has fled to Nepal.

By executing two back-to-back shootings in and around courts to kill his rivals, Amit Tajpuria alias Dabang is ranked number three on the list. In March, he killed Gogi’s close aide Monu Nepali near Rohini courts and then took a hit on another friend of Gogi, Dinesh Karala. Tajpuria is heading the notorious Tilli gang since the kingpin, Sunil Tilli, was sent to jail. He is reportedly hiring minors and training them to be contract killers.

Kuldeep Maan alias Fajja, the second-in-command in Gogi’s gang, is next on the list. Last year, he and Gogi killed two Tillu gang members. On January 15, he led a team that killed Tillu’s close aide, Ravi Bhardwaj, by shooting him 30 times in full public view in Prashant Vihar.

Police are hot on trail of Hashim Baba, a notorious gangster of northeast Delhi, after he jumped parole and went underground last year. A ruthless killer, Baba is now supplying arms to city criminals and living out of Delhi by extorting money from businessmen and bookies.

Rohit Moi has made it to the list by emerging as a key shooter for the Gogi gang. He came on the radar after orchestrating Gogi’s escape. Mahesh Thekedar features on the list after being untraceable for two years. He and his associates had abducted a former councillor’s son in 2016. A ransom of Rs 50 crore, one of the highest in Delhi, was demanded by the gang.

Paramjeet Dalal is ranked eighth after masterminding an abduction in 2016. A businessman was abducted from Vijay Vihar for a ransom of Rs 25 lakh and later made to pay another Rs 90 lakh for his release.

Sanjay Lakra from Mundka is wanted for murder and robberies. Of late, he has turned to land-grabbing and extortion. He started as a member of Kishan Pehelwan gang in mid-2005. Surender alias Samunder Khatri from Narela came out of Tihar on parole on January 16, 2015. A day later, he shot dead a Delhi Police constable. Khatri was sentenced to life imprisonment in 2010 in a case of murder reported in Sonipat, Haryana.

Cops are also on the lookout for criminals Shekhar and Devender of Rajesh Bharti gang, Manjeet Dabas from Kanjhawala, who has a reward of Rs one lakh on his head, Ashok Pradhan, Sameer Chotu, Sumit Chitania and Sumit Rathi.
