Man accused of killing sub-inspector nabbed

A notorious criminal and accused in the murder of a Delhi Police sub inspector has been arrested from Kashmiri Gate ISBT. 

Kishore Kumar was sentenced to life imprisonment by a session court for killing sub inspector Vinod Kumar in 2001, but he was absconding after filling appeal in Delhi High Court in 2009.

According to Sanjay Kumar Jain, deputy commissioner of police (crime and railways), cops had information that he was seen in Haryana and Himachal Pradesh in the past few months.

“This information was further developed and informers were deployed. On Tuesday, a specific information was received that Kishore would come to Kashmiri Gate ISBT from Sirsa to meet his contact,” Jain added.

He was held after being noticed alighting from a Haryana Roadways bus in the disguise of 'Kanwariya'.

In January 2001, Kishore and his associate Ghanshyam had shot at Vinod when he was on routine round at Majnu ka Tila and found both of them sitting in a car in secluded place.

Both of them got down from the car and tried to escape, but Vinod and constable Bijender chased and apprehended them, but on the instigation of Kishore, Ghanshyam fired at Vinod who was declared brought dead at a nearby hospital.

Later, both the accused were arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment by a sessions court. They filed an appeal in Delhi High Court which also upheld their sentence in 2009.

Ghanshyam was sent to Tihar Jail while Kishore was absconding. During interrogation, Kishore said that he was in Sirsa since 2010 and in between used to visit Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh and Dehradun to evade arrest.

“He had changed his looks and was living in Sirsa in the guise of a property dealer, locally known as 'Lala'. At Kashmiri Gate ISBT also he was in such a disguise that it was very difficult to recognize him,” Jain said.
