Ghaziabad: Denying charges that the death of six-year-old boy, killed in an encounter in Pilkhulwa area here, was not caused by police firing, the authority on Thursday asserted that he died of the criminal's bullet.

"Aman was hit by bullets fired by Sarvar and not by the police, even though police did fire in defence later. Defence became difficult as bullets hit the police van was well," SSP Raghuvir Lal said.

A police team led by inspector Sanjeev Bishnoi went on a visit to Dehpa village where a lady was allegedly beaten up. During the visit a notorious criminal Sarvar fired on the police after the team approached him, he said.

The policemen fired back on the criminal and during this encounter the child was allegedly hit by a bullet fired by Sarvar, said the SSP.

Sarvar, who had been released from jail about a fortnight ago, must have opened fire thinking that the police had come to nab him in the village, lal said adding that the police team was not well-equipped with weapons and fire arms as they were on a visit to the village to inquire about a different matter.

Meanwhile, the dead body of Aman, was handed over to his bereaved family and last rites were performed amidst tight security.

The condition of 60-year-old Babu Khan and PSI Bishnoi, who sustained serious bullet injuries in the firing, is stated to be stable, he said.

A large police force has been deployed in different parts in the district to nab Sarvar after the incident, SSP said adding that the district authority has also assured financial help to Aman's family.
