Mapsko Casabella: Residents appalled after wanted gangster's arrest

Gurugram: The residents, living in Mapsko Casabella Apartments in Sector 82, Gurugram, are in a state of fear after the special cell of Delhi Police arrested a most-wanted gangster Jitender Mann aka Gogi along with his three associates from the society in the wee hours on Tuesday.

Gogi hails from Alipur, Delhi and was carrying a reward of Rs 6.5 lakh on his head. He was arrested with Kuldeep Maan alias Fajja who was carrying a reward of Rs 2 lakh. The police had announced a bounty of Rs 3 lakh on the head of Rohit alias Moi. The other associate was Kapil alias Gaurav.

The police have also recovered six imported pistols along with a cache of ammunition.

Gogi was involved in the murder case of Haryana’s famous singer and dancer Harshita Dahiya, who was shot and killed in 2017 in Panipat. It was revealed in the police investigation that the murder was planned by her brother-in-law Dinesh Karala. He confessed his crime in police interrogation and admitted that he hired Gogi and others to kill Harshita. The police were looking for Gogi for a long time.

Gogi and his three aides were living in the Mapsko Casabella Apartments. The arrest of the most wanted gangster from the posh highrise society came as the shock to the residents living in the society, who said that they had no idea about him and were completely stunned when they came to know that the wanted criminal was living among them.

Dharamveer Singh, RWA President of the society said, “We had no idea who they were. They had rented a flat here through a property dealer and moved in here around one-and-a-half months back and were using all the facility.”

The residents are also appalled with the lackadaisical attitude of police over tenant verification process as they said it was done on the paper only with no ground verification by the local police. “We want online police verification of all the tenants living in the society and proper records to be maintained and shared with the RWA. The entire society is gripped with fear and shocked after this incident as we thought gated society is safe but it is not the case here,” he said.

Following the incident, the maintenance agency of the society has issued a notice to residents to get online police verification for all the existing tenants with their family members name and those who are in the process of moving in. “Without the online police verification, we will not allow any tenants to move in,” stated the notice issued by the maintenance agency of the society.

CitySpidey also checked the tenant registration form submitted to Gurugram Police. According to which, the flat was rented to a family of four. 

Meanwhile, the Gurugram Police said that the investigation is going on in the matter.
