On seeing the police, the two tried to run away. Subsequently, Ahmed took out a gun and fired at the officials. However, the accused were overpowered and apprehended, said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Dwarka) Anto Alphonse. During interrogation, Sameer revealed that after his release from jail in 2016, he and his girlfriend started an online fraud through which they defrauded unsuspecting persons of around Rs 13.5 lakh, Alphonse said.
