The ac­cused had al­legedly ac­quired coun­try-made weapons and stole a bike for a get­away. When the po­lice team ap­proached them, they tried to on the mo­tor­cy­cle.

The cops chased af­ter the men and cor­nered them. Re­al­is­ing that they were trapped, both Mo­ham­mad and Ali opened fire at the po­lice team. One round hit a cop on his bul­let­proof jacket. In the re­tal­ia­tory fire, a bul­let hit Mo­ham­mad’s left leg.
