A gangster who had as many as 38 criminal cases against him was allegedly shot dead by the members of a rival gang in Bijnor city in a shootout on Monday morning when he was being taken by the police from Bijnor district jail to Noida for appearance in court.
Police said the incident took place at around 8 am when four police constables reached Bijnor bus stand with history-sheeter Narendra "Nandu", alias Ravan.
"Before the constables and Ravan could board a bus, a group of five persons came in an SUV and started firing at Ravan and the constables," said City Kotwali Station House Officer Suryanath Singh Yadav.
They succeeded in killing Narendra, and one of the assailants was killed in the retaliatory firing by the constables, Yadav said. The police found a 9 mm pistol on the man who could not be identified.
Yadav said Narendra, who had committed several crimes in Delhi-NCR region, suffered three gunshots and died on the spot.
A resident of Nainsukh village in Gautam Budh Nagar district, he was a history-sheeter of Dadri police station.
A Uttar Pradesh State Roadways Transport Corporation conductor Pushpendra and a rickshaw driver Rajendra alias Lallu also got injured in the firing, but they were out of danger. They were injured in the legs.
Rajesh Kumar, Circle Officer (City), said initial investigation showed that the assailants were men of another Noida-based gangster Sunder Bhati, who is currently lodged in Noida district jail. He said the number of the assailants' vehicle was found to be fake. The CO said that there is a history of gangwars between Narendra and Bhati in Dadri.
