New Delhi, Aug 27 (IANS) Delhi Police Wednesday arrested Raghav Verma, an aide of notorious ‘bikers gang’ leader Om Prakash alias Bunty who was shot dead two days ago, officials said. Raghav, 32, used to stay in the same house as Bunty and gang member Rajesh, who was also killed by police Monday.
“Raghav Verma was arrested from south Delhi. He was staying with Bunty and Rajesh at the house in Badarpur till Aug 24,” said Delhi Police spokesman Rajat Bhagat.
