Ghaziabad Police on Friday arrested a wanted criminal against whom at least 30 cases were registered.
Police said they got hold of Anoop Mavi following an encounter in the early hours of Friday after a patrolling team received information about his movements.
When police asked him to stop at a check point, he sped away on his motorcycle. However, he was eventually forced to stop due to a hurdle in his way.
After abandoning the motorcycle, he opened fire at the police team. In the retaliatory police firing, Mavi sustained a bullet injury on his right leg following which he was overpowered and nabbed.
"The police recovered a pistol and motorcycle from his possession," said Superintendent of Police (City) Shlok Kumar.
