Sabir, who had escaped from police custody in Barabanki 10 months ago, belonged to the Mukeem Lala gang, a police officer said. The police had been looking for him ever since.
After a tip, the Special Operations Group (SOG) and police officers from various police stations surrounded Sabir's house around Tuesday midnight.
Sabir was with his wife then. Sabir allegedly opened fire in which the two policemen were injured.
He then tried to escape by jumping off the roof but the police team shot him dead with automatic weapons.
