17-Year-Old Opens Fire At Notorious Gangster Outside Delhi Trial Court

Suspected gangsters opened fire outside Delhi's crowded Tis Hazari court.

New Delhi: A 17-year-old boy opened fire at a notorious gangster outside a trial court in Delhi this afternoon. The teenager was caught on the spot, outside the crowded Tiz Hazari court in north Delhi, police said.

"We are trying to find out what happened," news agency IANS quoted a police officer. Gangster Dinesh Pathak, who was injured, is an accused in the murder of Haryana folk singer Harshita Dahiya in October last year. 

A police officer, who was close to where the firing took place, told news agency IANS that some "gun shots were fired". Police said the teenager fired at Dinesh Pathak when he and two other under-trials were brought to the court premises on Tuesday afternoon.

Police are investigating the incident. 

In December 2015, a policeman was killed and two others were injured at another trial court in Deljhi when a gang allegedly opened fire at an under-trial from a rival gang. The firing took place inside the Karkardooma Court premises in east Delhi.
