According to the Hindustan Times report, the suspects were involved in several crimes including carjacking. Though five people have been caught, the police are still searching the area to look for one or more men who might have escaped.

Those who fled could be hiding in a nearby building, NDTV reported. The report said earlier this month, a 38-year-old gangster who was wanted by police in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan was arrested after a brief shootout in Delhi.

Sources in the police were quoted by the report as saying that that since then, criminal gangs from Mewat (Haryana) and the surrounding areas have become active in Delhi, especially in the southern and outer areas of the city.
