Close on the heels of the news about Delhi police arresting a gangster from Uttar Pradesh who claimed to have visited Nagaland recently to plot the murder of a politician after the Lok Sabha elections, comes the arrest of another inter-state criminal operating in Uttar Pradesh and Delhi from Manipur, The Wire report stated.

Vijay Farmana, who hailed from Haryana and was involved in at least 11 murders and one rape case besides several other criminal offences, was arrested from Lucknow by Delhi police this past May 15. He reportedly claimed during interrogation that he had also visited Nagaland to plot the murder of a politician in the Northeast after the general elections.

Upon being contacted, a team of Nagaland police arrived in Delhi to procure more information. Meanwhile, rumours spread that the contract killer was hired to kill a Naga politician, creating a flutter in the state. 

Soon, the Nagaland police clarified that the contract was meant for Arunachal Pradesh. Though after the elections, a politician was killed in Arunachal, it is suspected to have been carried out by the armed outfit NSCN.

On May 28, a Delhi police team nabbed yet another gangster carrying an award of over one lakh and wanted in over 30 criminal cases registered in UP and Delhi. This time, the arrest was made in Manipur capital Imphal by a Delhi Police team.

News reports quoting DCP (Crime) Pramod Kushwaha said the team acted on a tip-off that the absconding gangster, Rizwan, was planning a strike in Delhi’s Trans-Yamuna area. After receiving information about his hideout in Manipur, a team was sent to Manipur.

Rizwan, wanted in a couple of murder cases apart from other criminal offences, took shelter in Manipur. There he reportedly befriended a local Muslim woman and married her. The couple has two children. News reports said he would regularly fly to Delhi, commit crimes and return to Imphal.

News about petty and middle-rung gangsters of North India operating in and from the North East is relatively new.
