Man shot dead in Delhi court

Vinod, 31, was shot dead while police was taking him back to the Tihar Central Jail.

An undertrial died after being shot at inside Delhi's Rohini Court complex on Monday.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Rishi Pal said Vinod, a resident of Mangolpuri who was in jail for a seven-year-old cheating case, was shot on a corridor near the court canteen at around 11.20 am. There have been previous instances of firing inside court premises in Delhi. "The accused was overpowered and arrested from the spot along with the weapon", Rishipal, DCP of Rohini.

It was also observed by lawyers that the crime scene was poorly manned. He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead, reported NDTV. He said the reason for the murder could not be ascertained immediately.

Following the incident, the incharge of Police post in Rohini Court, sub-inspector Narender was suspended while the Station House Officer of Prashant Vihar police station was sent to district lines.

This was the second shootout near the court complex. The prisoner, who was shot in this case, was arrested in December 2016 from Agra, for a murder.

The investigators had claimed that one of the accused was disguised as a lawyer and had come to the court to kill Pradeep Bhola, a member of their rival Neetu Dabodia gang.
