Infamous as Gurgaon’s most wanted, Sandeep Gadoli was on the run. He was involved in 36 serious offences including murders, said police. He was also involved in the killing of the driver of gangster turned municipal councillor Binder Gujjar in October last year, added the police.
“Further investigations will be carried by Mumbai Police. However, it is big win for us, as Gurgaon Police had been tracking Sandeep Gadoli for years now. The search had intensified following the recent gang war. This will definitely put the other gangs in fea”,” said Navdeep Singh Virk, Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon.
Sources said Gurgaon Police started tracking Gadoli recently following a tip-off” “Police received a tip-off that Gadoli and his gang members were spotted on the outskirts of Gurgaon in two cars. Officials in plainclothes started tailing the cars, covering parts of Haryana and Rajastha”,” said a police source. Gurgaon police team tracked Gadoli’s car by road and reached Mumbai Saturday night, said the source.
According to the source, it was the recent arrest of Gadoli’s trusted aide, Sonu, in Mumbai on charges of sexually harassing a model in Bandra, that finally put the Gurgaon police on the gangster’s track.
Mumbai police personnel visited Gurgaon to make inquiries about two boxers from Haryana in connection with the case, said the source.
“The Mumbai Police personnel were seeking information on two persons, Dinesh and Amit, in particular the latter, as he had managed to escape from Bandra police station. When they showed a picture of Dinesh, Gurgaon police personnel recognised him as Sonu. The description and information regarding Amit, matched Sandeep Gadoli. This was when a team was prepared to nab Gado”i,” said the source.
