Afsaar, Muzahid and Hashmat from Tyodi village under Bhojpur police station area were going to Hapur when a police team signalled them to stop in Patel Nagar area here, Superintendent of Police Shlok Kumar said.

The accused sped away and the police team flashed alert on the wireless, for other patrol units in the city, he said. When they reached Nand Gram area police teams surrounded them.

Finding no way to escape, one of them opened fire at a police team, which retaliated in self defence, Kumar said. Afsaar, and constable Pravesh Kumar were injured in the firing, and they have been admitted to hospital, the police officer said.
