New Delhi: Jailed gangster Neeraj Bawana, former Delhi legislator Rambeer Shokeen, and eight others were slapped with the chargesheet by Delhi Police under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) for allegedly running an organised crime syndicate.
Additional Sessions Judge Neena Bansal Krishna received the chargesheet and posted the matter for further hearing on September 24.
Filed by the special cell of Delhi Police, the charge-sheet named Bawana, Shokeen and eight others as accused.
Shokeen, who is on the run, was declared proclaimed offender by the court last week.
Bawana was arrested on April 7 from west Delhi’s Mundka area and is in judicial custody with eight other accused.
The other eight accused are — Pankaj Sehrawat, Sunil Rathi, Rahul Dabas, Naveen Dabas alias Bali, Naveen Hooda alias Bhanja, Amit Malik alias Bhura, Gurpreet Singh, and Deepak Dabas alias Deepa.
The chargesheet said all the accused were running a crime syndicate which was extorting money, committing murders, land grabbing, and settling property disputes—all with the aim of pecuniary benefits.
It was also established that the members of the crime syndicate regularly travelled long distances by road to various parts of India, stayed in good hotels and enjoyed a lavish lifestyle.
The chargesheet stated that the expenses for purchasing arms and ammunition, travelling, mobile phones, internet connections, hotel stay and other daily expenditure were incurred from the extortion money collected from businessmen.
