The MCOCA FIR stated all his earnings were spent in buying weapons and SUVs, which were used in committing more crimes.
Gogi was arrested in a number of cases earlier with the same set of gang members.
In 2016, he was arrested by Panipat police but fled from custody while being taken to court later.
In February 2017, he murdered one Devender Pradhan from Alipur as Pradhan’s son was involved in the murder of his associate, Niranjan.
In October, Gogi killed popular Haryana folk singer Harshita Dahiya, a prime witness in a murder case lodged against his close associate, Dinesh Karala. He was caught last year.
A teacher, Deepak, was murdered outside a corporation-run school in November and one Ravi Bhardwaj in Prashant Vihar this January by Gogi’s gang.
Gogi’s right-hand man, Kuldeep Maan alias Fajja, was gunned down several months ago after fleeing from GTB Hospital while being in custody, prompting reports that Gogi might also try to flee to run the gang. Of late, he had forged an alliance with Dubai-based gangster Sandeep alias Kala Jathedi. He also figured in an extortion bid of Rs 5 crore from a Dubai-based businessman.
Gogi was being investigated by a team led by DCP Pramod Kushwaha, which was probing an FIR against the gangster filed in 2018 under MCOCA.
An old FIR against the gangster read: “He fired at a man named Praveen in September 2010. Then, during elections at Shradhanand College, Delhi University, Gogi and his friends assaulted and shot at two men named Sandeep and Ravinder. Gogi was then arrested in October 2011. Thereafter, he… formed a gang to earn money.”
