Mumbai, October 20

A criminal with several offences against his name and an accomplice were on Saturday injured in an encounter with the Navi Mumbai police in the neighbouring Raigad district.

History-sheeter Faiyaz Khalid Shaikh and aide Salim were injured in retaliatory firing by police in an encounter that took place in the early hours of Saturday at Nadhal village in Khalapur taluka, said Navi Mumbai Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime) Tushar Joshi.

He said two Crime Branch officials were fired upon by Shaikh but escaped injuries due to the bulletproof jackets they were donning.

Despite sustaining a bullet wound, Shaikh tried to flee but was chased down after around 1.5 kilometres, he said.

Shaikh, along with two aides, was arrested from the spot and is currently under treatment at a private hospital for his injuries, DCP added.

Shaikh has 87 offences registered against his name, including for chain-snatching and theft, as well as three cases of attacking policemen.

Joshi said the police were on the lookout for Shaikh for the past few months and he had been recently spotted at Kahanvade toll point in Virar in the neighbouring Palghar district.

A police team had tried to nab him then but he had escaped after opening fire on them, Joshi said. PTI
