Stolen AK-47 seized from Delhi gangster’s house
The Delhi police have detected an AK-47 and a self-stowing rifle from Delhi gangster Neeraj Bawana’s plot in the Bawana area, located on the periphery of the National Capital.
During investigation, Bawana informed that his maternal uncle and former Delhi MLA Rambir Shokeen had supposedly helped him in hiding the stolen rifles. Bawana has been reserved under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act. Shokeen may be booked under the same Act.
Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) SN Srivastava said: “There are disclosures which authorize Shokeen’s questioning. The further procedure of action will only be decided once the interrogation is done.”
Bawana and his gang freed another gangster Amit Bhura from the Uttarakhand police’s supervision and robbed them of two rifles on December 14, 2014.
The Delhi police said they had determined a group of 15 to 20 men believed to be part of the gang.
Sanjeev Yadav said, “A special cell uni had revived the two weapons from Bawana’s familial plot in Bawana village last night between 9 pm and 10 pm.”
The weapons will be given back to the Uttarakhand police. Bawana was arrested after a brief interview with the police in outer Delhi on April 7.
