Greater Noida: Two criminals were arrested by Gautam Buddh Nagar police after a gunfight in the wee hours on Tuesday from Greater Noida metro depot station under Surajpur police station area. Police officials said that both the criminals were wanted in the sensational murder case of two youths from Dadri area, bodies of whom were recovered from inside the bushes at a service lane of Surajpur-Dadri road near depot Metro station on the morning of September 3.

According to police, the arrested accused have been identified as Sukhmeet and Yogesh alias Bachchi, both natives of Dadri area. "Over a dozen cases of heinous crimes were registered against each of these criminals at various police stations around Gautam Buddh Nagar district," said police officials.

Vaibhav Krishna, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Gautam Buddh Nagar said that the accused were arrested after a gunfight with police in which both of them had received bullet injuries in leg.
