New Delhi, 4th Feb. 
Two accused involved in the high-profile murder case of Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) chief Nafe Singh Rathi were arrested today. The individuals, identified as Saurabh and Ashish, were captured in a joint operation conducted by the Haryana Police and the Special Cell of Delhi Police in Goa. Both shooters have alleged ties to the Kapil Sangwan gang.

The incident, which occurred on February 25 at a railway crossing in Haryana’s Jhajjar district, saw Rathi’s vehicle, a Toyota Fortuner, ambushed by assailants in a mysterious i20 car. In the attack, Rathi and a loyal aide lost their lives, while two others sustained critical injuries. Notably, the life of Rathi’s nephew, who was driving the SUV, was spared by the assailants, who instructed him to inform the family about the incident.

Jhajjar Superintendent of Police, Arpit Jain, confirmed the arrest of the two shooters and stated that efforts are ongoing to identify and apprehend the remaining suspects. The car used in the attack has been recovered, aiding in the investigation. Police teams are conducting raids across various states to locate and arrest the other perpetrators.

Meanwhile, another individual named Dilip Singh, residing in Rajasthan’s Balotra, has been arrested in connection with threat calls made to Rathi’s sons. Although Singh was found to be following gangsters on social media, no direct ties to criminal networks were established during interrogation. Investigations into the threat calls, which prompted concerns about Rathi’s safety, remain ongoing.

Earlier this week, Haryana Home Minister Anil Vij announced the decision to hand over the investigation into Mr. Rathi’s killing to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). Senior INLD leader Abhay Singh Chautala criticized the BJP-JJP government in Haryana for allegedly failing to provide adequate security to Rathi despite reported threats to his life.
