Delhi's most wanted gangster shot dead in encounter

October 25, 2013 03:00 IST

Surendra Malik alias Neetu Dabodia, Delhi Police’s most-wanted gangster who carried a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh and was wanted in over 50 cases of murder, extortion and kidnapping, was on Thursday night killed along with two of his accomplices in an encounter near a posh hotel.

Acting on a tip-off, Delhi Police special cell laid a trap near Hotel Grand Hyatt in Vasant Kunj at around 10:30 pm when Dabodia along with two of his associates came in a car there.

When police intercepted them and asked them to surrender, they allegedly rammed their car into the police vehicle and opened fire at them, S N Srivasatava, Special Commissioner-Special Cell, said.

In retaliation, police fired at them injuring all the three who were taken to AIIMS Trauma Care Centre where they were declared brought dead.

Malik was allegedly involved in the killing of Delhi police head constable Ram Kishan in December last year.

While one of Malik's associate was identified as Alok Gupta, the identity of the third one is yet to established, Srivasatava said.
