New Delhi, India - On Thursday, S.N. Srivastava, the commissioner of the special cell of the New Delhi police confirmed that Surendra Malik, aka, Neetu Dabodia, 28, a most wanted mafia boss had been killed along with two of his bodyguards in southern Delhi, the capital city of India. One of Dabodia's bodyguards was identified as Alok Gupta and the third deceased suspect has not been identified.
Srivastava says, that police received a tip that Dabodia would be visiting an area called The Grand area in Vasant Kunj and police set a trap. They spotted Dabodia's vehicle around 10:30 p.m. and when police attempted to intercep the vehicle, Dabodia rammed his vehicle into a police unit. Police asked Dabodia and the two suspects to surrender, but they began to shoot at police. 
In the 30-minute shootout, Dabodia, Gupta and another suspect were critically injured in the gunfire and were taken to a hospital for treatment, but they were pronounced dead on arrival, according to Srivastava.
Dabodia had been wanted for last year's murder of Delhi's Police Chief Constable Ram Kishan and for at least 50 cases that includes multiple homicides, extortion, contract killings, kidnappings and robbery in Delhi and nearby Haryana.
In August 2012, Dabodia escaped from Haryana police custody while being transferred to a Saket court from the Bhondsi jail in Gurgaon.
A $11,396 dollar (Rs 7 lakh) reward was being offered for information leading to Dabodia's arrest.
