Delhi Police Commissioner declared a reward of Rs 50,000 on his arrest, the DCP said.

Kushwah said, “Teams were deputed at Najafgarh, Dwarka, Gurgaon and Chattarpur to locate hideouts of the gangster and he was finally arrested around 1 pm while trying to meet an associate in Dwarka.”

The officer said, “Mahal along with his associates had allegedly gunned down ex-MLA Bharat Singh while attending a religious ceremony, in presence of scores of people, at Abhinandan Garden in Najafgarh on March 29 last year. Police had arrested some of the accused while Mahal and another main accused Hemant were absconding.”

Earlier in 2013, Mahal was arrested in connection with an attempt to murder one Dheerpal at B4 Chowk on Narela Road. However, he was released on bail and went into hiding after that.

In a case of criminal intimidation, Mahal’s name first came on police record registered at Inderpuri police station.

“After this he never looked back and entered deeper into the world of crime and became an active member of Balraj gang of his native village,” Kushwah said.
