NEW DELHI:  Several innocent people could have lost their lives if there was no immediate police retaliation taken against the two armed assailants in the shootout inside the Rohini, said Sub-Inspector Vir Singh, who was part of the security team engaged in exchange of fire.

According to an FIR, Singh said that since the duo was armed with weapons and they were firing indiscriminately, it was not possible for the police team to nab them “physically”, especially when judge and court staff were inside the courtroom.
