New Delhi, June 4 (IANS) A criminal, with a reward of Rs 1 lakh on him, has been rearrested after he jumped bail, a police officer said on Monday.

"A trap was laid near Begumpur Chowk where a biker (later identified as Deepak) was signalled to stop but he whipped out a pistol and tried to fire on the police party. He was however overpowered," said Joint Commissioner of Police Alok Kumar.
"Deepak, a resident of Rohini, was his involvement in a sensational murder case in Hauz Qazi area (of old Delhi). He and nine other associates of Rawat gang had on August 29, 2007 murdered local goon, Vijay Yadav who used to extort money from local builders in the area," he added.

In custody subsequently, he was granted interim bail for a period of three weeks on March 20 and supposed to surrender on April 12 but disappeared, the officer added.
