A po­lice team was pressed into ac­tion and dur­ing the chase, the crim­i­nals opened gun­fire on the po­lice. We fired back in re­tal­i­a­tion and the bul­let hit two crim­i­nals in the leg. How­ever, one of the ac­com­plices man­aged to flee from the spot tak­ing ad­van­tage of the dark” said Pankaj Rai, sta­tion house of­fi­cer, Su­ra­jpur po­lice sta­tion.
