New Delhi: A team of NIA and Uttar Pradesh Police was attacked by a mob early on Sunday when it raided a village in Ghaziabad district to arrest a suspected arms supplier linked to the killing of Punjab RSS leader Ravinder Gosain in Ludhiana, officials said.

Constable Tahzib Khan suffered a leg injury when the mob pelted the raiding team with stones and even fired at them in Nahali village in Pilkhuwa area, following which officials too fired in the air. The team had gone looking for arms supplier Malook.

The mob also damaged an official vehicle in stone-pelting.

“We raided the village on a tip-off about some suspects who supplied firearms to the suspects who killed Gosain,” a National Investigation Agency official told IANS.
The official said a large crowd of both men and women tried to obstruct the team.

“Some people even started firing, followed by stone-pelting. The mob also set up multiple roadblocks to obstruct officials from discharging their duties. In self-defence, Uttar Pradesh Police and NIA men also fired in the air,” the official said.
