Ghaziabad: Kavi Nagar police on Saturday arrested a dreaded criminal after an exchange of fire in Ghaziabad. Police said that the accused identified as Sharukh, who was carrying Rs 25,000 bounty on his head, was arrested but his accomplice fled the spot.

According to police, "One motorcycle and a licensee pistol have been recovered from the criminal." "A team is carrying out search operations in the area," police added.

One Constable along with the criminal, who was injured in the process was sent to the hospital for treatment. A case has been registered in this regard. Further investigation is underway.

In another case, a 23-year-old man identified as Mohit was shot at multiple times and critically injured by a group of men in Rohini in New Delhi on Saturday, police said. Mohit was attacked around 6:30 am when he along with his three friends were sitting in a car.

A senior police officer said that four men in a vehicle pulled up alongside Mohit's car and one of them got out and pointed a gun at the victim. Though the victim's friends managed to run away, Mohit, who was slow-footed, was chased by the armed man and his accomplices.

Mohit ran towards a colony in Sector -11 and was shot at multiple times. He suffered injuries and is admitted at a city hospital. His condition is said to be critical. The perpetrators, who have been identified, fired 15-14 rounds, he said.

The officer said police and the forensic team have inspected the spot and Mohit's friends are being questioned. It is suspected to be a case of personal enmity, police said.
