NEW DELHI: Gangster Naveen Bali, who is currently lodged in Tihar Jail, was reportedly found having made two calls from inside the prison to order hits on his rivals.
Police from West district claimed that the first call was made around July 20. Bali called up his henchman Satish and asked him to kill his rivalGurpreet from Tilak Nagar. A few months ago, Bali had got into a spat with Gurpreet inside the jail.
DCP (West) Deepak Purohit said, “Bali asked Satish to take weapons from a gunrunner, Maurish alias Kuki Bakkarwala. On July 25, Satish gavethree pistols of .32 bore and 30 cartridges to his associates Lucky, Harpal, Toni and Sunny Issepur. They attacked Gurpreet, but he managed to survive. The pistols were handed back to Satish after the attack.”
A few days later, Bali again called Satish asking him to give the weapons to Lucky and Sunny. This time, the target was Sandeep from Kanjhawala.
On August 10, police got a tip-off that shooters of the Neeraj Bawania gang would come to Punjabi Bagh to commit a crime. Two bikers, later identified as Satish and Harpal, were arrested on Ring Road by a team led by inspector Narender Kumar. They revealed how Bali had been coordinating the gang’s operations from jail.
