Two miscreants got injured in an encounter that broke out with the police forces in the Tila Mod area of Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad on Sunday, officials said. The miscreants tried to escape police checking near D Mart on Loni Bhopura Road.
Shalimar Garden Police Station ACP Suryabali Maurya said, “Police checking was underway at the Loni Bhopura road by the station house officer (SHO) of Tila Mod. Two people on a scooter were asked by the police officers to stop. They didn’t stop and instead fled. The SHO Tila Mod then informed the police forces ahead.” “The two were trying to escape. When surrounded by the police team, they started firing at the forces and got injured by the police’s retaliatory firing,” the ACP added.
The miscreants have been identified as Furkan and Jitin, both residents of Delhi. Police recovered 2 pistols, a stolen scooter and Rs 10,000 in cash from their possession, ACP Suryabali Maurya said.
