Criminal held for killing youth in Delhi

New Delhi: Police said on Friday they arrested a “notorious criminal” on charges of killing a youth following a row over a trivial issue outside a departmental store here.

Sidhant, who has been involved in over 30 criminal cases registered in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, was arrested on Thursday night from Dasna in Uttar Pradesh, Deputy Commissioner of Police Pankaj Singh said.

Sidhant along with an accomplice had on Monday night fired at least five rounds at Yogesh following a fight in east Delhi’s Mayur Vihar area.

The argument began after Sidhant’s car pulled up next to Yogesh and his two friends. Yogesh picked up an iron rod and smashed the side window of the car, Singh said.

Yogesh had come to the departmental store after attending a birthday party, the police said.
