- A Proclaimed Offender, the woman has been on the run since 8 months
- Her 8 sons are also involved in criminal activities
- She controlled some borewells and also ran a water supply mafia
"Mummy", as she is called by her gang members is a 62-year-old gangster involved in 113 crime cases. She was finally been arrested on Saturday by the Delhi police 45 years after she entered the world of crime after moving from her native in Rajasthan.
Counted among top five dreaded women criminals, Basiran was arrested on a tip-off from Sangam Vihar when she was there to meet her family. She was on the run for the past eight months in a case and was declared a Proclaimed Offender in May.
Her eight sons too are involved in criminal activity along with her, ranging from murder, contract killing, robbery, bootlegging, to snatching.
Eight months ago, Basiran and her gang members took up a contract to kill a man. The gang members took him to a forest on the pretext of drinking and killed him. They later burnt his body.
Police came to know of the crime a week later when a person who had gone to the forest area found the decomposed body.
Police arrested those involved in January, but Basiran was evading arrest since then.
The woman had control over some government borewells in Sangam Vihar and was running a water supply mafia too, involving her sons.
