Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Sunday claimed that his state is fighting gangsters from Haryana and other states.
Gehlot’s statements came after the Sikar shootout gangsters were arrested on Saturday. “The accused came from outside while some were from Rajasthan as well. It is very unfortunate that some gangs are still operating in the state. We are fighting against gangsters from Haryana and other states,” CM Gehlot said while addressing the media after attending a meeting of the Congress Steering Committee at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) office in the national capital.
This meeting was conducted to note the overwhelming success of the Bharat Jodo Yatra and the wide participation of lakhs of people.
In Rajasthan’s Sikar, Director General of Rajasthan police Umesh Mishra earlier told ANI that they have detained five persons, of whom Manish and Vikram hailed from Rajasthan, while the other three belonged to Haryana.
“We have detained five persons accused in yesterday’s gang war wherein one history sheeter Raju Thet was killed. Two of them have been identified as Manish and Vikram of Rajasthan, while the other three hailed from Haryana,” Umesh Mishra said.
He further said that the case could be resolved successfully because of the night-long search operation by Sikar’s Superintendent of Police (SP) and Inspector General (IG).
