Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A 37-year-old man, allegedly involved in the killing of a realtor in Greater Noida, was arrested from MB Road in Southeast Delhi after a brief exchange of fire with police today.

Harender Nagar was arrested around 5.30 PM after a brief encounter with the police, said Chinmoy Biswal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Southeast Delhi).

A carbine and a pistol, along with 12 live cartridges, were recovered from him, the police officer said.

Nagar is the alleged mastermind of the sensational murder of realtor Moti Goyal at Sector 49 of Greater Noida on April 16, according to the police.

A specific input was received that Nagar was headed towards Mehrauli via MB Road in a white car. A police picket was erected near Kaya Maya Ayurvedic Hospital and the vehicle was signalled to stop, the police officer said.

On seeing the police team, the driver tried to speed away. It was followed by a brief exchange of fire in which the accused used his pistol to fire at policemen. The policemen retaliated with two shots and finally managed to overpower him, the officer added.
