Police arrested a man allegedly involved in four cases of murder, including that of former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag’s relative in 2008, Wednesday. Police said the man, Darshan Dabas, had been absconding since 2018, after he allegedly killed another man in Najafgarh over a property dispute. Dabas was arrested from Dwarka following a brief exchange of fire.
“Dabas had shot dead Sehwag’s relative, Hitender Dagar, when the latter was returning home from a wedding in his car. He was arrested and sent to prison. In 2011, he was granted bail,” said a senior police officer from the Crime Branch. Dabas had allegedly shot Dagar over a property dispute, said police.
Rajesh Deo, DCP (Crime Branch), said, “On Wednesday, police came to know that he would visit Dwarka’s Sector 23. On seeing police, he tried to escape. But he crashed into a police vehicle, after which he fired shots, one of which hit the bulletproof jacket of a cop. They retaliated…he has been arrested.”
