The Special Cell of Delhi Police in Delhi’s Bakkarwala surrounded the accused, Kamal Gahlot, where he received a bullet injury to his leg in a shootout.

Dalal and Mehta were the members of the Pradeep Solanki gang.
Pawan later suspected Mehta’s involvement in the conspiracy in his brother’s death and wanted to avenge him.
