NEW DELHI:  Two wanted criminals were killed in a police encounter in northeast Delhi’s Khajuri Khas area, police said on Thursday. The Station House Officer of Khajuri Khas police station received information about the presence of wanted criminals in Shri Ram Colony in Khajuri Khas area.

The two men — Amir Khan and Ramjan — were hiding inside a room on the second floor of a building in Shri Ram Colony, Sanjay Kumar Sain Deputy Commissioner of Police (northeast Delhi) said. “A joint operation was conducted by teams of Khajuri Khas and Begumpur police stations. When our teams reached the spot, they asked the men to open the door but instead they threatened them,” he said.

Assaulted over a bill payment

According to the police, the deceased, Dilip, used to work at the eatery. They said he got into an argument with an e-rickshaw driver who was heading out after having a meal on Wednesday.
