The most wanted criminals including three brothers, have been detained by the West District Police. The reports revealed that the accused were the residents of Mumbai. The case of cheating has been lodged against them.
The name of the accused has been identified as Gaurav Sethi (35), Vikram Sethi (36) and Manish Sethi (40).
“Gaurav was a Punjabi film producer who had escaped from police custody with the help of the other two.” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Yadav said.
“Gaurav Sethi was declared a Proclaimed Offender in two cases. A reward of Rs. 25,000 each was declared on their arrest,” he added.
Gaurav was arrested by the Lodhi Colony Police in 2014. Later, he was taken into judicial custody.
“Constable Hawa Singh was escorting Gaurav to Tihar Jail in a vehicle. When Singh reached near the DDA Market Jail Road to take food for the accused, his brothers reached there and requested the constable to allow them to get the signature of Gaurav,” said Mr. Yadav.
Two of his brothers and accused Gaurav rushed from the spot after they committed crime.
“A case under appropriate sections was registered. However, they could not be arrested as they kept on changing their location and identities,” Mr Yadav said.
The probe disclosed that Gaurav and his brothers were living in Mumbai under fake identities. Two films has been produced by Gaurav.
“In 2008, he produced a Punjabi film, ‘Watno-Dur’. In 2011, he produced another film, ‘Baba Bulleshah’,” said Mr. Yadav.
