The accused, Rahul alias Star Rahul, is an associate of another rowdy-sheeter Rizwan alias Kullu Rizwan.

There were eight warrants pending against him.”

According to the DCP, a team formed under Sub-Inspector Basavaraj Patil of Hanumantha Nagar police station located him near Narayan Nagar.

A shot was fired in the air to warn the accused but he failed to surrender, following which the SI fired at his legs, injuring him in the right leg. The injured accused as well as the head constable were rushed to a hospital nearby. Both are out of danger and are recovering.
