After this, along with his associates, Danish had robbed Rs 1.80 Lacs from one Dinesh Mishra when he was returning after collecting his company’s cash in the Jafrabad area. In 2010, he robbed Rs. 55 Lacs from a businessman near Jai Mata Di market, Keshav Puram at gunpoint and followed it up with another sensational robbery of Rs. 49 Lacs at gunpoint from the employees of Orient Craft Company in Okhla Phase-I while the victim employees were carrying the amount in a vehicle after withdrawing cash from Corporation Bank, M-Block, GK-II, Delhi.
In late 2010, the Special Cell had apprehended 3 inter-state robbers, including Danish and had recovered arms, ammunition, a Zen car and part of the looted cash. After spending about three years in jail, during which he had developed a strong network of criminals, he was granted bail in 2013. he is the first cousin of one Naasir, the most dreaded member of Naasir-Hashim gang operating in Trans-Yamuna area of Delhi. After committing a number of sensational crimes Sabir became a key operative of the Naasir-Hashim gang. While Danish was on bail, one Tabreiz, a close resource person of Naasir was murdered by the henchmen of one Aakil alias Mama, who was another dreaded gangster in the area and was fighting a bitter turf war with the Naasir-Hashim gang. Danish seized the opportunity and in an act of daylight brutality, committed the gruesome murder of Aakil “Mama”. This murder was witnessed by one Zahid, the brother of the deceased.
