New Delhi | Jagran News Desk: An encounter broke out between Delhi Police Special Cell and criminals on Friday morning near the Nizamuddin area in New Delhi, reported news agency ANI.

As per reports, two criminals were injured in the encounter. The criminals are suspected to be involved in an attack on an ANI journalist last month.

“The injured criminals are suspected to be involved in the attack on ANI journalist Joymala Bagchi, last month,” ANI quoted Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Special Cell, Sanjeev Yadav as saying.

The two criminals have been identified Anil and Arun and were involved in many robberies and snatching cases in all over Delhi, the police said.

In September, the woman journalist, Joymala Bagchi, who works with ANI, suffered injuries on her face and hand after she was attacked by two bike-borne robbers in broad daylight who dragged her out of an auto-rickshaw, snatched her phone and managed to flee.

The incident had occurred last month near Chittaranjan Park in New Delhi when Bagchi was travelling in an auto-rickshaw. She suffered a fracture in her jaw and got stitches on her chin. She also suffered injuries on her hand.

She was profusely bleeding when the locals came to her rescue. She was later taken to a nearby hospital by Delhi Police and later shifted to AIIMS.
