Jathedi, cops say, had been indulging in large-scale grabbing of disputed properties in Delhi through Sonu and others. Kumar allegedly joined hands with Jathedi a while ago and landed a property in M2 block of northwest Delhi’s Model Town. This is the flat at the centre of the entire controversy. This flat was being used to shelter criminals belonging to the Jathedi-Lawrence Bishnoi gang and many crime plots were hatched there, said an officer.
