Delhi police informer shot dead in Noida


Noida: A man working as informer to the Delhi Police was shot dead by a gang of car robbers in the Sector-61 area of Noida Tuesday afternoon, when he was leading the police to them, police said.

Pramod Kumar had led a Delhi Police team to the suspected hideout of a car lifting gang in Sector-61. As instructed by the police, he went alone to the flat to call up the robbers to help police apprehend them.

As he called them down and walked towards the police jeeps waiting for them in one corner near the Sai temple, the robbers suspected something wrong. Sensing the presence of police, the robbers shot him and fled the spot.

A critically injured Pramod Kumar was taken to Apollo Hospital in Delhi where doctors declared him dead.

The police said Pramod Kumar knew the members of the gang involved in car lifting and trading of used and stolen cars. The Delhi Police were on a look out for them in several cases.

Senior Superintendent of Police A.K. Singh said: “Pramod was being taken by Delhi police to Sector-61 to nab some people. As he was talking to these elements and taking them towards police teams, they fired on him, after which he died.”
