A woman lawyer was also injured during the firing.Dressed as lawyers, they opened fire in Court on Friday afternoon. It was a major security breach.”Two gangsters killed in immediate counterfire by police as they opened fire in lawyers’ attire at a gangster UTP (Under Trial Prisoner) in Rohini court premises this afternoon. All 3 gangsters dead. No other injury or death occurred,” Delhi Police wrote in a tweet.
Mobile phone images captured by people in the court premises in Rohini, in western Delhi, showed people running for cover while shots rang out.
