Kasganj Murder Case:

Kasganj Superintendent of Police Manoj Sonkar told reporters on Sunday that six teams were formed for arresting Moti. Police got a tip-off that Moti is hiding in a forest near the Kali river along with his aides. When a police team started cordoning the area around 2.30 am, the miscreants opened fire, the SP said.

"Police in retaliation and self-defence fired at the criminals in which Moti was injured, while another criminal escaped taking advantage of the darkness. Injured Moti was taken to a primary health centre in Siddhpura from where he was referred to Kasganj district hospital.

The doctors there declared him dead during treatment. Police also recovered the looted pistol (of the sub-inspector), cartridges and a country made pistol from the accused," he added. The body of the accused has been sent for postmortem, police said.
