The accused, untraceable for more than 12 years, were wanted in several cases including murder of police personnel and under Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).
Police received an information that Sehrawat and Lakra along with their associates were planning to commit some crime in Delhi and were also in possession of illegal weapons, said P S Kushwah, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell).
On Friday, acting on a tip off that the accused would arrive at Pochanpur to meet their other associates, a trap was laid at Najafgarh drain and both the accused were intercepted in a car. Subsequently, they were apprehended, the DCP said.
