New Delhi: Two men from Haryana have been arrested by the Delhi Police for their alleged involvement in the shooting of a head constable, a senior officer confirmed on Friday. The incident took place on Wednesday in Sonipat's Ashok Nagar area.
"On November 15, the Sonipat Police received a PCR call regarding a firing incident on a Head Constable of Delhi Police identified as Parveen. He sustained serious injuries and was immediately taken to the hospital. An FIR was registered, and a manhunt was initiated," said Special Commissioner of Police (Crime) Ravindra Singh Yadav. The Delhi crime branch formed a team to investigate the case following the incident.
