The incident took place around 11 PM last night when Karawal Nagar resident Saurav Sharma reported that three unidentified persons tried to rob his motorcycle and mobile phone near Gagan Cinema.
“The PCR van chased the robbers in the direction stated by Sharma and apprehended one of them and seized a pistol, after two rounds of firing. The accused was identified as Sher Mohd, a resident of Loni, UP. His associates, however, managed to escape,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (PCR) Rajeev Ranjan.
