Jhajjar, October 31

A CIA police team on Friday evening arrested a juvenile, who had escaped from an observation home in Hisar a few days ago, from Birdhana village area following a brief encounter.

The juvenile suffered bullet injuries on his leg during the exchange of fire and has been admitted to PGIMS, Rohtak.

The police also recovered a pistol, two live cartridges and a motorcycle from him. The juvenile was allegedly involved in the Machharauli village bank robbery case in which five masked miscreants had looted Rs 7.11 lakh at gunpoint from a Punjab National Bank branch on October 21, said sources.

“The juvenile opened fire when the police tried to intercept him for checking. The police too retaliated, leaving him injured. He was rushed to the Civil Hospital in Jhajjar and subsequently referred to PGIMS, Rohtak,” said the policeman.

He maintained a case of attempt to murder had also been registered against the juvenile, who was lodged at the Hisar observation house in connection with a murder case.

Seventeen inmates, eight of them facing murder charges, had escaped from the observation home on Barwala road after allegedly attacking security guards on October 12. A majority of them belong to Rohtak, Jhajjar and Hisar districts, the police said.
