A day after a jailed gangster and his two attackers were killed in a shootout inside a Delhi courtroom, the Delhi Police arrested two men and recovered a car used to drop the assailants to court.

The accused – identified as Umang and Vinay were nabbed based on closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera footage from the Rohini court.

According to police officials familiar with the matter and cited by the ANI news agency, the shootout was planned by four assailants and while two of them were shot dead by the police right after they fired at Gogi, the two others who were absconding have now been held.

Delhi’s most wanted gangster Jitender Maan alias 'Gogi' one of the most notorious gangsters in Delhi was shot dead inside the courtroom.

According to reports, one of the arrested men is a close associate of Sunil alias Tillu Tajpuriya, Gogi’s longtime rival.

According to Delhi Police officials cited by the news agency, Umang was supposed to wait outside the court in a car as a backup and “escape plan”, while the three others would go inside the courtroom and eliminate Gogi. But since the plan failed, Umang fled away alone in the car. All the four individuals earlier met at a mall and left for the court.

On Friday, gunmen dressed as lawyers killed one of Delhi’s most wanted gangsters Jitender Gogi in a shootout inside Rohini court in Delhi. The attackers were also killed after shots were fired between two rival gangs and the police.

The gunmen belonged to the Tillu gang, another notorious criminal group in the national capital, according to the police.

The police said that Gogi and Tillu who were both behind bars had been at loggerheads for a long time.
