Gangster who mocked cops on YouTube held

A 24-year-old interstate gangster from Haryana was arrested in a joint operation by the Cottonpet police and the Central Crime Branch on Wednesday.

Based on a tip-off, the suspect, Deepak Kumar alias Tinu, was arrested from Krantivira Sangolli Rayanna (KSR) railway station. According to the police, Tinu has as many as 28 criminal cases pending against him in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Delhi.

He was earlier accused of firing at the Delhi Police. The Haryana Police had arrested him in July but he was on the run after breaking out of Ambala prison in June. The police said Tinu had graduated from Punjab University and had formed a group called Students of Punjab University comprising 100 armed members who operated around the country. He had made short films on his crimes and glorified himself in videos which he uploaded on Youtube and social media networks under the name Tinu Haryana, where he mocked the investigating agencies.

The police said Tinu was taken into custody. After probing his links to Bengaluru and the state, he would be handed over to the Delhi and Punjab Police for further investigation, said senior police officer.
