During his studies, he came in contact with bad elements and started committing crimes in Rohtak. In 2019 he started robbery, threatening and firing for extortion on behalf of his distant relative Rohit @ Mota, a criminal active in Rohtak. In May 2023 he started developing some differences with said Rohit @ Mota who humiliated accused and to avenge this humiliation, he decided to kill Rohit @ Mota with the help of some dreaded criminals. In this effort he got Insta id of one member of Lawrence Bishnoi gang lodged in Punjab Jail and through him he succeeded to establish direct contact with Anmol Bishnoi, relative and close associate of Lawrence Bishnoi. The accused was tasked by syndicate to open fire at a prominent five star hotel in south Delhi area. Then he roped in a juvenile of the same village to associate him in the crime. The juvenile agreed as he was also looking for criminal support to settle his personal score. The recovered weapons & ammunitions were arranged by gang member at Haryana. Some days back both of them visited and identified the place of firing and also identified the route of escape.
