One accused was arrested after the Delhi cops formed a team to nab the criminals
In this incident, another officer received injuries after they were attacked while the gang was chased down by a raiding team in the early hours of Saturday. The injured constable has been admitted at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS).
The incident took place after Constable Vinod received an input that illicit liquor was being smuggled into the Capital in a car and that the consignment was meant for supply to a client in the posh Sainik Farms area of South Delhi on Saturday evening, reported The Hindu.
Acting on the tip-off, Constable Vinod and his colleague Sukhvinder laid a trap and spotted the vehicle in question near the Sainik Farms. As the suspects drove towards a forest in Ghitorni, the constables followed it. When they reached the forest and were looking for the smugglers, a group of men ambushed them with sticks and stones, said a police officer.
Vinod and Sukhwinder received serious injuries in the attack. Sukhvinder somehow managed to alert the police, following which the assailants fled from the spot. A police van that reached the scene of crime took the victims to AIIMS where Vinod succumbed to his head injuries on Saturday afternoon. "Sukhvinder is recuperating in the hospital," said the officer.
