"Aman alias Bittu (20) fell in bad company after his parents divorced. He was inspired by the character of an underworld don in the movie 'Shootout at Wadala' played by John Abraham and also went to Mumbai to meet him," Manoj CJ, Additional DCP (southwest) said.
He was a brilliant student. But after his parents divorced, he dropped out from studies after Class XII. He fell in bad company and started taking drugs and committing petty crimes like theft, the officer said.
After serving a jail term of six months he was released in March and formed his own gang that committed a series of crimes in southwest Delhi, he said.
Aman was arrested along with Abdul Khan, a receiver of the goods stolen by him, from the parking area of Sector 24 Metro station in Dwarka yesterday, the Additional DCP said. With his arrest, police have solved nearly two dozen cases of robbery, snatching and theft of vehicles. A stolen motor cycle and 12 mobile phones snatched by him were recovered, the officer said.
