At least five people, who were wanted in several criminal cases, were arrested on Sunday morning following a shootout with the police, an official said.
A Delhi Police constable and two of those arrested received bullet injuries in the gun fight that took place around 10.15am in west Delhi’s Rohini Sector-24 area.
“Two of those arrested -- Sudhir and Vijay -- and one policeman Pradip received bullet injuries,” deputy commissioner of police Vikramjit Singh said. Pradip sustained injury in his thigh, the official said.
Another police official close to the investigating team said the other three accused were identified as Sanjay, Farman and Sunny.
The officer said the police laid a trap and intercepted the criminals when they were moving in their car near Begumpur check post -- a few metres away from the shootout spot.
“When the raiding team asked them to surrender, they opened fire,” the officer said.
