According to CNN, an Indian gangster was shot dead in a New Delhi courtroom by two rival gang members dressed as lawyers.
The armed men opened fire while Jitender Gogi, 30, was on trial for murder, the media agency reported.
"Two gangsters who were killed in the immediate backfire by police this afternoon when they opened fire in attorney's clothes on a UTP gangster (among prisoners on trial) in Rohini courthouses," said a tweet from the Delhi police. "All three gangsters are dead. No further injuries or deaths have occurred."
Police added that an investigation was ongoing.
According to News 18, Gogi was jailed last year for alleged involvement in 19 homicide and attempted homicide cases.
The Hindustan Times reported that Gogi had headed a sophisticated organized crime syndicate for years. The newspaper said he continued to commit prison crimes after reportedly using secret cell phones to extort money from his maximum security prison cell.
One of Gogi's suspected killers, Sunil Maan, was a childhood friend before the two became deadly rivals, the Hindustan Times said. The two had fought a bloody turf war for more than a decade, the newspaper said.
