Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell-Counter Intelligence) Manishi Chandra said Anuradha was an associate of gangster Anandpal Singh, who was killed in a police encounter in 2017 in Rajasthan's Churu district.
The arrest comes a day after gangster Sandeep alias Kala Jathedi was held from Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur on Friday. Sandeep was wanted in several cases of extortion, murder, and other heinous crimes in Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, and Haryana, police said. He has a reward of Rs. 7 lakhs on his head.
The Delhi Police also collaborated with the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against Jathedi.
