Gurgaon, Haryana, May 5 (UNI) Unidentified gunmen shot dead a criminal in a local court here this morning while he was being produced before the judge in connection with a case.

Six armed men fired at Hardatt (30) at about 0845 hrs, while he was being escorted by policemen, in the court premises. He died almost immediately, said sources.

However, in a swift move police shot dead one of the attackers and nabbed another while they were trying to flee.

Later, one of the four who managed to flee the scene was chased and killed by the police in Sohna.

Hardatt, who had 12 cases against him including that of murder, dacoity and loot, belonged to the dreaded Sandeep gang.

Police suspect it to be a retaliation attack by a rival gang, whose one member was similarly killed in the court some time back.

Sandeep too has earlier escaped a bid on his life.

Last month one Dharamvir was shot dead within the local court boundaries.

Sources said this was the 6th such incident in Gurgaon in recent times resulting in the death of several persons including a policeman.
