Nagpur: In a filmy style action, Gittikhadan police on Wednesday surrounded a house and nabbed a notorious criminal who was wanted for attempting to murder a man over old enmity in December 2017. Since then the cops were on his trail.
According to police sources, the accused Irfan Khan alias Gazni Rehman Khan (35), resident of Swagat Nagar, had picked up a quarrel with the complainant Firoze Khan Jabir Khan (34), resident of Garib Nawaz Nagar, Tehsil, on December 25, 2017. Subsequently, to settle the score, the accused Ghazni asked other accused Immu Kalya to kill Firoze Khan. As told, Immu Kalya attacked Firoze Khan with a sword and injured him seriously with the intention to kill him.
