GG News Bureau

New Delhi, 12th May. Delhi Police’s special cell has detained two more Tihar jail inmates in connection with the death of gangster Tillu Tajpuriya inside the prison, officials stated on Thursday.

According to officials, the arrested accused have been identified as Chavanni and Attar Rehman.

“They were also lodged in jail number eight of Tihar prison. It was the same prison where Tajpuriya was stabbed to death allegedly by four members of a rival gang,” officials said.

So far, the police have detained six people in connection with the murder of mobster Tillu Tajpuria in Tihar jail.

According to government sources, Rehman allegedly assisted the four assailants in disposing of the weapons used in the murder, while Chavanni covered the CCTV camera with a bedsheet during the May 2 crime.

On Thursday, the Special Cell of the Delhi Police reached Tihar Jail and recreated the crime scene with the accused.

Tajpuria was allegedly murdered in Tihar Jail on May 2 by members of a rival gang. The entire incident was recorded on the prison’s CCTV system.

On the other hand, in a major rejig in the Tihar Jail, following Tajpuriya’s murder as many as 99 prison officials were transferred on Thursday.

This came when CCTV footage of the killing of Tillu Tajpuriya leaked, which indicated that fellow inmates continued stabbing the prime accused of the Rohini Court gunfight in front of uniformed officials, who did not intervene.

The footage from the CCTV camera mounted on the wall of Central Gallery inside Tihar Jail, was from around 6:15 am on May 2.

The police personnel could be seen standing near Tillu Tajpuriya, lying on the floor, and watching three men stabbing the gangster with weapons, fashioned out of lockup grills.

Later, nine Tihar Jail officials, including the assistant superintendent, were suspended in this matter.

However, apart from this, sources earlier told ANI that the jail administration has initiated listing of dreaded gangsters, lodged inside Tihar, and started shifting them to different prisons. “Tihar administration has initiated the work as they predict another gang war inside the jail,” the sources said.

The sources further said that in the wake of Tillu Tajpuriya’s murder by the members of Gogi gang, the administration is shifting all inmates to different cells, which would be far from their rival gang members’ cells.

“All in all, Tihar Jail has over thousand prisoners, including the top gangster and his henchmen. They mainly include those prisoners who are in silent mode and suddenly attack their rival gang members,” the Tihar Jail sources said. They went on to add that there are around 30-35 inmates, whose security is under threat.
