Rana, former member of the notorious Sunil Rathi gang, sustained eight bullet injuries and died while he was being taken to a hospital in Dehradun. Senior superintendent of police Krishan Kumar V K told TOI that the two men who opened fire in court have been arrested while one is on the run.
Forty-year-old Rana was being produced in the additional district judge’s court in connection with a shootout in 2014 in Roorkee prison. At about 10.45am three masked men fired several rounds at Rana while he was waiting in the lobby. The sound of firing created panic among people in the multi-storeyed building who scurried to seek cover, according to Pradeep Verma, Rana’s lawyer.
The two who were injured have been identified as Ajit and Satish, both from Saharanpur. They have been admitted to a hospital where their condition is said to be stable.
Meanwhile, two nimble-footed constables hit the armed men with the butt of their service rifles after which the situation was brought under control. One of the miscreants managed to flee amid all the confusion.
Police have identified the the two accused as Mohit Sharma and Ajay Sharma from Jind in Haryana.
SSP Krishan Kumar said that the three men were sent by one Rishipal from Nanauta in Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur district to “settle scores” with Rana, a suspended constable of Uttarakhand’s provincial armed constabulary (PAC). He was a native of Simlana village in Saharanpur district.

The men have been identified as Mukim Jhojha from Bahaadpur Khadar in Laksar and Nitin Surenderpal alias KK from Fafunda village in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut district.
Senior superintendent of police (Haridwar) Krishan Kumar V K said, “We got a tip-off from one of our informants that a few days ago a gangster named Jitti Rawat who is currently lodged in Haridwar jail has given a contract to his sharpshooters to eliminate a Dehradun-based property dealer. We identified the property dealer as one Pankaj from Dehradun.”
According to Roorkee police, gangster Rawat gave a contract worth Rs 15 lakh to the sharpshooters to kill Pankaj. The two men were also lodged in Haridwar prison for four months and hence were known to Rawat.
They had reportedly visited the office of the property dealer to familiarize themselves with the premises. Circle officer Swapan Kishore Singh said that the sharpshooters were arrested while they were on their way to Dehradun on a motorcycle to kill the property dealer.
Police said that both men have been booked in many cases in the past in police stations in Haridwar, Meerut and Kotdwar etc.
They were reportedly also planning to kill an industrialist in Haridwar as they were hired to do so by Vipin Jain, a member of Sunil Rathi gang.
Gangsters, love affair behind fatal shooting at Amritsar wedding: Police
Wedding ceremony of a woman was going on in a banquet hall when two rivals, who were invited to the function, got into a bloody fight due to old enmity. Both died on the spot during gunfight.
PUNJAB Updated: Dec 13, 2017
The clash in Amritsar on Monday that claimed lives of two persons and injured as many, was not an ordinary fight. It was part of a gang war with love affairs as the trigger, Amritsar police claimed to have found during investigation a day after.
The wedding ceremony of a woman of Khaparkheri was going on in the banquet hall near the village when two rivals, Manpreet Singh alias Manga (30), a friend of the bride’s brother, of nearby Haweliana village; and Harwinder Singh alias Ghudhi (31), arrived there. Both were invited to the function and got into a bloody fight due to old enmity. Both died on the spot during gunfight.
Notably, Ghudhi had three cases had already registered against him in different police stations in Amritsar. His two aides — Gagandeep Singh alias Gagan and Amarjit Singh, both of Chabhal in Tarn Taran district — who have been named in the case registered in Gharinda police station on the statement of Ranjit Kaur, mother of Manga, also have a criminal background. As many as 12 cases have already been registered against them in different police stations in Amritsar and Tarn Taran.
For allegedly killing Harwinder Singh, a cros- case was registered against Manga, Monu Cheema of Chabhal, Sukhdev Singh of Marhi Megha, Inderjit Singh of Chhina Bidhu Chand, Gurpreet Singh and Pamma, both of Khaparkheri.
Police also found love affairs behind the grudge between Manga and Ghodhi. It has been learnt during the investigation that they were close friends once and used to meet at each other’s homes. Manga fell in love with a close relative of Ghodhi who kept a grudge and found the wedding ceremony where Manga was invited as an opportunity to attack him.
Some sources revealed another theory. They said Ghudhi reached the venue of the ceremony with his aides. They first snatched rifle from Manga and shot him with his own rifle. To ensure cross-FIR against Manga, Ghudhi asked his aides to shoot him targeting his leg, but the target was missed and Ghudhi also died. However, this fact would be confirmed on seeing the autopsy report.
Cops arrest Nine accused in Rowdy-sheeter murder case

VIJAYAWADA : Vijayawada police arrested nin persons for their connection in the sensational murder mystery of Kalidasu Subramanyam alias Subbu who was murdered in cold blood on broad daylight under Machavaram police station limits on December 6. Explaining how they killed Subbu, police commissioner Gautam Sawang recreated the crime scene with the help of demonstration video prepared with clippings of CCTV footage.
He said that six of the accused came to Vijayawada from Itha Nagar, Tenali on December 6 in three bikes and conducted a recce at Machavaram and Eluru Road before attacking Subbu. The main accused Surendra was there at Tenali giving directions to the six over phone.
This was not the first attempt to kill Subbu. Surendra and his men have been conspiring to kill him since the past four months. They even attempted once which failed when a traffic cop stopped them for violating traffic rules.
They came innumerable times to Vijayawada to inquire about Subbu’s whereabouts in Machavaram. Knowing that he regularly visits the tea shop at Machavaram Down, the team hung around the tea stall to monitor Subbu’s movements on that fateful day and killed him. During the interrogation, they confessed to their doing and admitted that Surendra hatched the plan to murder Subbu.
“This is nothing but a case of revenge killing. Subbu was killed to avenge the death of Mediseeti Krishna, a close aide of Surendra. Krishna was murdered by Subbu and his brother Kalidasu Satyam in April 2014 in Tenali. Later Gadisetti Surendra killed Satyam in 2015,” said Sawang. Sawang further said police tracked the movements of the accused which were captured in 50 CCTV cameras at different junctions in Vijayawada and Tenali. All the nine arrested would be produced in court on Monday.
