The injured attacker has been identified as one Rahul, 27, a resident of Vikas Nagar near Ranhola.

During the chase, the miscreants left their motorcycle. The police traced the owner of the bike.

“The house of the bike owner was raided. Two brothers, Rahul and Mohit, 21, were overpowered by the two policemen. While they were being taken to the police station, the associates of the brothers attacked the police with knives due to which they suffered wounds in their hands,” said the officer.

Despite suffering injuries, the two policemen fought back and did not lose their grip on the two brothers. When Rahul attempted to escape, Balram whipped out his service revolver, aimed at his leg and shot twice.
