Gurgaon, Oct 10 (IANS) A 27-year-old man accused of plotting the July 15 shootout of a gangster here has been arrested, police said on Saturday.
Kavinder Singh of Baund Kalan village in Haryana’s Bhiwani district was arrested from his hideout in Gurgaon’s Garhi Harsaru village on Friday night by the Crime Branch.
Gangster Rakesh Hayatpur was shot at by four men in a car while driving to the district court. One person was killed and two were injured when his SUV rammed into an autorickshaw after the shooting near Central Mall.
Kavinder Singh, a graduate, who plotted the attack, was produced before a magistrate on Saturday and sent to two days police remand.
“Rakesh escaped the attack because Kavinder got overexcited after seeing the target and ordered his men to shoot him immediately,” Yashwant Singh of the Crime Branch told IANS.
The SUV’s driver who suffered a gun shot lost control over his vehicle. It rammed into an autorickshaw, killing its driver.
