Finally, five criminals - all carjackers from Punjab 's Lawrence Bishone-Sampat Nehra gang who were partying in the flat - were arrested without anyone getting hurt.

A Delhi Police team joined the Punjab Police personnel in the operation but DCP (south-west) Shibesh Singh said their role was only peripheral.

A total of 30 rounds were fired.

According to police, the suspects were involved in several crimes, including carjacking.

However, one among them managed to escape by sliding out from a window. "These men were wanted in at least three cases of murder or attempts to murder in Punjab", said Chahal. "Seventeen guns, including 15 pistols, a.315 bore rifle and a 12 bore shotgun, apart from 100 rounds of different calibre, were seized from them". A team of Punjab police along was zeroing in on a gang of carjackers who mostly operate in Punjab and South Delhi.

A shootout erupted at Dwarka Mor metro station earlier today.

A witness who was near the station at the time when the incident occurred said he saw a man dressed in plainclothes carrying a "sophisticated weapon" firing towards the building and heard gunshots from inside as well.

The man said he soon realised the person in the plain clothes was a policeman.

As per a police officer's statement in the report, the suspects were hiding on the 2nd floor of a building, and a property dealer had given them the flat on rent. Further Investigation is going, the official added.
