Chhatarpur encounter case transferred to Crime Branch

New Delhi, June 12

The investigation of the encounter in which four criminals were shot dead in Chhatarpur on Saturday will be carried out by the Crime Branch of Delhi Police, a senior police official said.

LG Anil Baijal with Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik today met eight police personnel who got injured in the encounter, whose condition is stated to be stable.

Bharti’s gang, also referred to as the “Kranti Gang”, was mostly active in Haryana, but in the last one year, they had committed crimes in Delhi too. One of the gangsters, Kapil, who was injured in the encounter, is undergoing treatment at the AIIMS Trauma Centre and is stated to be out of danger.

Officers are waiting for Kapil’s condition to improve so that they can ascertain the identity of others who were accompanying him and the reason for which they had gathered at the farmhouse. The farmhouse owner, Sanjeev, is still at large. It is still not clear whether he was accompanying the gang members at the time of the encounter. — TNS
