The accused had plans to kill a businessman in Najafgarh. “Police received information regarding this and a team reached the spot. Two bikes were seen coming from Kharkhari Village and heading towards Ujwa. Police tried to stop the riders, but they tried to flee from the spot,” Mr. Yadav said adding that one of the motorcycle riders lost his control while the other left the vehicle and they tried to run away from the spot. The accused then started firing at the police party after which the officers retaliated.

Sumit was hiding in Delhi to shoot at another businessmen and Deepanshu provided information about the targets as per the directions of Rohit Dagar, sharp-shooter of Nandu Gang, the police added.
