A 26-year-old criminal based in Ludhiana in Punjab has been arrested from west Delhi’s Dwarka area, police said on Sunday.
Police said Sandeep Jassal is a close associate of Ludhiana-based gangster Rajinder Singh Lovely and is involved in different cases of crime in the Punjab city.
He was arrested when he went to meet an accomplice at a government dispensary near Dwarka’s Sector-14 Metro station on Thursday evening, Deputy Commissioner of Police Madhur Verma said.
Jassal told police he had opened a garments shop in 2014 but suffered losses and shut down his business. He later came in contact with Lovely and joined his lottery business in Ludhiana.
Jassal later entered the world of crime and was involved in various cases of gambling, liquor smuggling and under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, the officer said.
