Two men were killed in a shoot out in busy traffic, creating havoc in broad daylight.
New Delhi, Dwarka– The busy traffic of West Delhi’s Dwarka Mor was disrupted and echoed with bullets when some serious shoot-out took place between two rival gangs active in the area. The two men named as Parveen Gehlot, a resident of Nawada area, and Vikas Dalal, had several cases of murders, extortion, and robberies registered against them in Delhi and Haryana, the police said.
The incident happened around 4 pm when three men in a car intercepted another car in which Parveen Gehlot was traveling and opened fire at him. Fifteen rounds were fired in the busy area, leading to panic among commuters, a senior police official said. The entire traffic and the commuters were horrified by the sight as one of the men with a helmet on, fired bullets blindly inside the car, leaving the situation like a wreck.
The reason behind this shocking incident was a property dispute. Police officials in a PCR van near the metro station reached the spot and fired gunshots at the criminals and killed one of them. Two people involved in the shootout managed to flee. The police said they have identified them and efforts are on to arrest them. A case of murder has been registered at Bindapur police station, the officer said. Dalal was on the run after escaping from Haryana police custody in 2018, he added. Time and again it has been noticed that much of the criminal affairs are now being frequent in Dwarka and its nearby areas causing the civilians to feel unsafe.
