Police shoot at 2 men a day after they robbed techie of phone

The Bellandur police shot at two habitual offenders who attacked them and tried to flee at Chikkanayakanahalli on the city’s outskirts on Sunday morning.

Muzammil (20), a resident of Anekal and Amar (25), a resident of Chandapura, had earlier killed a head constable in Tamil Nadu. They are wanted in 11 cases registered in various police stations in Karnataka.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Whitefield) Abdul Ahad said a robbery complaint had been filed by software engineer Anand on Saturday night. The complainant said he was walking on Sarjapura Main Road at 11 pm on Saturday, when four miscreants in two bikes stopped him, attacked him and robbed him of his mobile phone. Later, four teams of Bellandur and Varthur police were formed to nab the suspects.

During patrolling on Sunday morning, the police noticed two abandoned bikes near a eucalyptus grove on Sarjapur Road. Soon, a team traced Muzammil and Amar nearby. Police asked them to surrender, but the suspects refused.  The duo attacked head constable Anthony and another policeman Vinay with a knife. Bellandur inspector Victor Simon shot them in their legs and they fell down.  The police shifted them to hospital for treatment. Vinay and Anthony are also undergoing treatment.
