Three members of biker gang accused of murders arrestedAugust 1st, 2008 - 4:17 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) Three members of the notorious gang of bikers, allegedly involved in at least five shootings in July, were arrested in the capital, police said Friday. Three of the five members of the gang - Zakir, Rakesh and Mushtaq - were arrested from Badarpur area in south Delhi where they had gone to meet the wife of one of their friends Thursday, Delhi police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said.
Two of the gang members, including the kingpin Om Prakash alias Bunty, are still absconding, Bhagat said.
Delhi Police had declared a reward of Rs.50,000 each for anyone providing information about the gang members after they allegedly killed five people in south and east Delhi in July.
The biker gang first made news on July 5 when its members gunned down property dealer Sonu, 25, outside his Sangam Vihar residence.
Police said the gang killed two friends - Ashneet Singh, 24, and Harjeet Singh, 26 - at Amar Colony near Lajpat Nagar nearly two weeks ago. Barely a few minutes later they shot dead Sanjeev Suri, 30, near the Andrews Ganj crossing when one of the motorcycles they had stolen ran out of fuel.
The very next day the same gang shot Naresh and Pawan, both in their 30s, in south Delhi’s Dakshinpuri area.
Officials also suspect their role in recent robberies at two shops in east Delhi.
