Meerut (UP): Gangster Anil Dujana was gunned down in an encounter by the Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force in Meerut on Thursday, days after the assassination of jailed gangsters Atiq Ahmed and his brother Ashraf in police custody and the death of his son Asad in a police encounter, media reported.

Dujana had 62 cases filed against him, several of them on the charge of murder and extortion.

As per initial reports, the Uttar Pradesh Police and Anil Dujana engaged in a gunfight and the gangster was killed in the exchange of bullets, India Today reported.

Anil Dujana was traveling in a Scorpio car to meet his associates in Meerut when he was killed. The encounter involved a total of 21 rounds of firing, with Dujana firing 15 rounds. Two 9 mm pistols were seized from Anil Dujana's possession after the encounter.

Anil Dujana was considered a notorious figure associated with terror activities in Gautam Budh Nagar, Ghaziabad, Delhi-NCR, and Haryana.

He had been released from jail on April 10, 2023, and wasted no time in issuing threats to witnesses in Gautam Budh Nagar as soon as he was out.

Dujana had a close association with gangster Naresh Bhati, who was allegedly killed by Sundar Bhati.

Following Bhati's death, Dujana retaliated by attacking Sundar Bhati. As a result, he had taken over the command of the gang previously led by Naresh Bhati.
