Three people, including gangster Jitendra Mann 'Gogi', died in a firing incident Friday at Delhi's court, police said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Rohini) Pranav Tayal said the assailants were in the uniform of advocate when they fired at Gogi.

Police team also fired in return, the DCP said. The assailants opened fire at gangster Jitender Mann 'Gogi' when he was brought to Delhi's court by police for a hearing, said Police. Gogi was arrested by the special cell in April. He was involved in the killing of Haryana-based singer 22-year-old Harshita Dahiya, who was gunned down by assailants in 2017 in Panipat.

Gogi carried a cash reward of Rs 4 lakh in Delhi and Rs 2.5 lakh in Haryana.

"Two criminals opened fire at gangster (Jitender Mann) 'Gogi' when he was taken to the (Rohini) court for a hearing. In retaliation, police shot dead both the attackers. One of them was carrying a reward of Rs 50,000," Delhi Police Commissioner Rakesh Asthana told ANI.
