NEW DELHI: Three mobile videos and a CCTV footage have surfaced of an attack on police personnel in west Delhi’s Tilak Nagar on Wednesday night. A Delhi Police constable was critically injured in the attack by an alleged criminal, Sagar.
A woman, the criminal’s mother, is seen in one of the videos trying to stop the attack, which took place in a crowded marketplace. Police are probing the incident.
“On Wednesday, constables Mukesh and Deepak had gone to serve a summon to a tenant residing on the third floor of the building where the criminal, Sagar, also stayed. When the constables were walking back, he started questioning them. Soon an argument ensued and within seconds, Sagar stabbed Mukesh on his hand and abdomen. Mukesh then fired two rounds in the air. Sagar tried to catch his pistol, and in the scuffle, another round was fired that hit the criminal on his chest,” said a senior police officer.
Both the cop and the criminal are out of danger.
The accused was out on bail in a dacoity case.
The CCTV footage shows a brief interaction between the cops and the criminal soon after which the latter stabs the constables and runs away. The confrontation continues in a lane where the criminals’ mother steps in between. The injured criminal can be seen lying on the side even as the cops struggle to take him to hospital. After some minutes, the cops lift the accused to take him to a hospital.
