Delhi Police's Special Cell led by inspector Sunil Rajain, inspector Ravinder Joshi and inspector Vinod Badola under the close supervision of ACPs NDR Lalit Mohan Negi and Hridaya Bhushan busted an extortion racket that was being operated from Mandoli Jail. They nabbed two henchmen of a gang of Khoda Colony before they could execute a couple of killings to establish supremacy in Khoda Colony, Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. They are alleged to have been working for one Chanderbhan alias Aman Yadav alias Chauwa who is currently lodged in Mandoli Jail. They work for the lodged criminal.
It was learnt that some of the gang leaders lodged in Jail, have been procuring sophisticated weapons to eliminate their rivals and also for establishing supremacy in their area for running an extortion network more smoothly. It was learnt that one desperate and dreaded criminal Chanderbhan presently lodged in Mandoli Jail, has tasked his associates with eliminating two persons so that he could continue wielding his clout in Khoda Colony for running the extortion racket.
A tip-off was received that the gang leader Chanderbhan had passed instructions to his henchmen to murder two persons whenever they were seen in the area. The instructions were clear to eliminate both the persons, sooner the better. A case under appropriate sections was registered at Special Cell and a special team was constituted and in a swift operation, arrested two members of a gang of Khoda Colony from near Bal Bharti School, Khoda. Both the arrested persons are hardcore criminals and were previously involved in many heinous crimes.
Those arrested have been identified as Bal Kishan and Mohammad Ateeque.
"We have recovered one stolen sports motorcycle Yamaha R15 and arms-ammunition intended to be used in the commission of this heinous crime. Besides, .32 bore country made pistol and 4 live cartridges were also recovered from their possession. In addition, a search was carried out on jail number 11, Mandoli and recovered one diary containing the details of the arrested accused Ateeque," Pramod Kushwaha DCP Special Cell spoke.
There would have been murders in the area had the Cell not swung into action in time to foil their attempt. This killing would have served the dual purpose for Chanderbhan of stamping authority in Khoda Colony as a dreaded extortionist, he would have eliminated the witness of an extortion case against him as well. Their presence on the turf would have been threatening for the criminals jailed in Mandoli.
Chanderbhan has a string of heinous crimes that anchors him including several murder cases, armed robbery, extortion and attempt to murder.
The other accused Ateeque from Bharaich, UP fell into bad company. He came in contact with Chanderbhan during his schooling and later on developed a deep friendship. Ateeque was released from Tihar Jail on February 27, 2019, after remaining in judicial custody for 32 months.
He was arrested in case FIR No. 230/16 under Sections 395, 397, 120-B and 34 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, and Section 25 of the Arms Act, 1959, PS New Friends Colony. In this case, Ateeque along with his associates robbed an elderly couple of their belongings. The accused Balkishan from Bulandshaher, UP indulged in petty crimes. He was first arrested in the year 2004 in a theft case and thereafter, was arrested multiple times in different cases including armed robbery. He was arrested in the year 2004, 2005, 2010, 2011 & 2013 and got bailed out each time.

After his release from jail, he remained in contact with Chandrabhan and completed the assigned 'work' for the jailed extortionist.
