1 killed and 7 injured in shootout outside Rohtak court complex on Tuesday
Firing at undertrials outside a police-fortified court complex in Rohtak on Tuesday in broad day light, resulting in the death of one person and injury to 7 others has sent shock waves across the state.

Lawyers suspended work demanding security. Their concern is justified as off late incidents of firing in court premises are increasing. This is the second such incident of gang war within a week in the state.

The police needs to take extra precaution when producing undertrials and particularly those who are history sheeters or have been previously involved in gang wars. It has to gear up its intelligence setup also in view of reports that one shooter hadentered the court complex dressed up as a woman.

Rohtak SP Pankaj Nain rushed to spot and reshuffled six Station House Officers (SHOs) in the district. Later or sooner the culprits will be nabbed.

This incident has reminded of a similar shooting incident that had happened in a Rohtak court about one and half decades back, afterwhich the erstwhile DGP had rushed to Rohtak and told journalists, ''What can the police do? People have even killed Prime Minister Indira Gandhi." It is interesting to mention that the accused were close to political bosses.
