Neeraj Sehrawat, popularly known as Neeraj Bawana, was born on 5 August 1988 in Bawana, Delhi. Since childhood, he was not so good at studies and took his formal education only till class 10. His father wanted Neeraj to assist him with the tenting business that he earlier owned. In his teenage years, Neeraj developed a habit of indulging in fights for petty issues, even on the behalf of his friends. He often received scolding and beatings from his father for such acts. His father is a bus conductor in the Delhi Transport Corporation.
Neeraj Bawana began committing petty crimes like robbing while he was in his teens. He was first arrested for a robbery in Haryana in 2004. Bawana served three months in jail and was later let out on bail. Shortly after, he was arrested again in 2005 for possessing arms without a license and was imprisoned for two years in Delhi’s Tihar Jail. Neeraj rose to fame after falling out with his once-crime-partner Surendra Malik alias Neetu Daboda. When Neeraj was still a fresher in the business of extortion, Neetu was a well-established name in the world of crime. They joined hands at one point and together carried out several crimes. Neeraj was first lodged in jail number 1 of the Tihar Jail in 2015 with other prisoners. However, he was later transferred to the high-security ward (jail number 2) after the Delhi police informed the jail authorities about him being in touch with his gang members inside and outside the prison. As of 2021, he still operates his gang from inside the jail.
