Three minors held for kidnapping man, trying to kill him

Pistol, ammo, motorcycles used in crime recovered

Three juveniles who allegedly kidnapped and tried to murder of a man in south Delhi’s Malviya Nagar have been nabbed.

The victim was kidnapped at gunpoint on December 26 by six juveniles who took him away forcibly on a motorcycle. However, he managed to flee from them. The three accused are identified as Vipin, Anuj and Parmjeet.

A country-made pistol, two live cartridges and two motorcycles used in the crime have been recovered from their possession.

The victim Deepak Kumar Jha had reported that on around 3.30 pm on December 26, when he was sitting in a park in front of Saket Court, six boys came there and kidnapped him.

They took him to a house in Chirag Delhi village.
He was beaten with iron rods and lathis in the house. They then took him on a motorcycle towards Suraj Kund in Haryana with the intention to kill him.

While they were passing through Mangal Bazar Road in south Delhi’s Sangam Vihar, Jha raised an alarm and took out Vipin’s pistol from his trousers and hit it on his head.

Vipin lost control of the motorcycle and they all fell down. After that, Vipin and his friend ran away from the spot after snatching their pistol back.

Sangam Vihar police reached there and took the complainant to the AIIMS trauma centre. 

Later, a police team managed to arrest Anuj and Parmajeet. 

However, the main accused Vipin, a member of ‘Raju Baba Gang’ was still absconding. 

On January 10, police received information that Vipin would come to meet Prince near Ganda Nala, Chirag Delhi. He was arrested.

Vipin disclosed that he had a grudge with Deepak Jha since a quarrel five or six months ago. Hence, he wanted to kill him to show his status in the locality. 
 
Police are interrogating the arrested youths to find out the whereabouts of the other accused in the case.
