Three members of bikers gang arrested in Delhi

August 01, 2008 12:09 IST

Three members of the notorious bikers gang, which allegedly killed five people in four recent attacks, were arrested in Delhi [Images] on Friday.

Zakir, Rakesh and Mushtaq -- three of the five members of the bikers gang -- were arrested from Badarpur area in south Delhi, when they went to meet the wife of one of their friends, a senior police officer said.

Two of the gang members, including their leader Om Prakash alias Bunty, are still absconding, the officer said.

The Delhi police had declared a reward of Rs 50,000 each on the five members of the gang.

The gang has been involved in four shootings in south and east Delhi.

The bikers gang first made news on July 5 when its members gunned down Sonu, a property dealer, outside his Sangam Vihar residence.

The police said that the gang killed two friends � Ashneet Singh (24) and Harjeet Singh (26) - at Amar Colony near Lajpat Nagar nearly two weeks ago. Barely a few minutes later, they shot dead 30-year-old Sanjeev Suri near the Andrews Ganj crossing, when one of the stolen bikes ran out of fuel.

The very next day, the same members of the 'Bunty gang' shot Naresh and Pawan, both in their early 30s, in south Delhi's Dakshinpuri area.

Officials also suspect their involvement in two robberies in east Delhi in July.
