UK-based ‘wanted’ gangster Kapil Sangwan, alias, Nandu, has claimed responsibility for the killing of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) state president Nafe Singh Rathee who was gunned down along with a party worker by unknown assailants near Bahadurgarh railway crossing in Jhajjar on Sunday, PTI reported. 

The gangster took to social media and said that he was the one who got Nafe Singh killed. He alleged that the leader had a close friendship with gangster Manjeet Mahal and Nafe Singh used to work with Mahal's brother Sanjay in capturing properties. 

“He supported Mahal in the murder of my brother-in-law and my friends. This will be the outcome for anyone who joins hands with my enemy. If anybody supports my enemies, I will support their enemies and all the 50 bullets will wait to take away that person's life," he said as quoted by ANI. 

The gangster revealed that the entire Bahadurgarh knows the number of people Nafe Singh captured and killed while in power, adding to which he said, "No one could raise their voice because of his power."

“If the police had been so active in the murder of my brother-in-law and my friends, I would not have needed to do this," he called police being ‘inactive’. 

Who is Kapil Sangwan aka ‘Nandu’? 

1) Kapil Sangwan (32) alias Nandu, a native of Delhi's Najafgarh is wanted in 18 cases including MCOCA (Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act), murder, attempt to murder, extortion and robbery and arms act in Delhi, Haryana, and Rajasthan, PTI reported citing Sangwan's dossier prepared by the Delhi Police.

4) On instructions from his elder brother Jyoti Prakash alias Baba, who is currently in Tihar jail, to take revenge, Sangwan formed a team of his associates and killed Nafe Singh alias ‘Mantri’, who was a close associate of Mahal, the officer said. Jyoti Prakash is the other half of the infamous Kapil-Jyoti Baba gang.
