Two inter-state robbers were held after an exchange of gunfire with police in the Filmcity on Thursday, police said.

The shootout took place around 5 am near the Electrical Board office in Sector 16 while the duo, identified as Phool Singh and Chandan, was being chased by policemen, an official said.

“The accused, who were on a motorcycle, were intercepted at Atta by the local police. Instead of stopping for inquiry, they turned around and sped away, raising suspicion. They were chased down by policemen on patrolling duty but the duo opened fire at them,” a police spokesperson said.
