In a startling revelation, it has come to light that Monu Manesar, a member of the Bajrang Dal currently detained in Bharatpur district jail, Rajasthan, was deeply influenced by ‘jailed’ gangster Lawrence Bishnoi and aspired to join his criminal syndicate.
A viral video clip has surfaced, showing Manesar engaged in a video call conversation with Lawrence Bishnoi and his associate Raju Basaudi, purportedly in a jail. This video has raised questions about Manesar's connections to the criminal underworld, particularly the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
The undated 38-second video shows Monu Manesar in a car conversing with Lawrence Bishnoi via video call. Bishnoi, who has been incarcerated since 2014, appears alongside another individual within the prison. The emergence of this video has intensified speculations surrounding Manesar's association with the gangster.
Monu Manesar was arrested on charges related to the killing of Nasir (25) and Junaid (35) and was also accused of inciting violence in Nuh. The video's circulation has deepened the intrigue about his ties to the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. In the viral video, Manesar not only communicates with Bishnoi but also engages in conversation with Basaudi, a gang member incarcerated in a Punjab jail but active in Haryana.
Previously, a WhatsApp exchange between Manesar and Bishnoi's brother, Anmol, had gone public, revealing Manesar's desire to join Bishnoi's gang and operate from Haryana. Authorities are currently investigating the connections between Monu Manesar and Lawrence Bishnoi, with further revelations expected as interrogations progress.
On September 12, Manesar was apprehended by the Haryana Police in Gurugram and subsequently handed over to the Rajasthan Police on transit remand. He faces multiple charges under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including sections 147, 148, 149, 120B, 307, and 201. Gurugram Police will bring him in for a production warrant at Patauli police station on September 25 as investigations into his alleged criminal associations continue.
