Anand Singh, the constable, who was posted at Bawana Industrial area, was shot dead in outer Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy area at around 9 pm while trying to catch miscreants fleeing after snatching a bag from a woman.
Anand later chased them and managed to catch two of them. However, one of the assailants pulled out a country made pistol and shot the constable. Even after getting shot, the constable refused to let them go and was constantly getting hit with a helmet by the miscreants.
Leaving Anand bleeding, the assailants left the spot in a jiffy. The Delhi Government had later on Saturday announced Rs one crore compensation to Anand’s family.
