A sub inspector was killed in an encounter with criminals in Dadri this morning, police said.

On a tip off that a wanted criminal Sultan was hiding at a house in Dadri, a police team reached the spot. Sultan, who is wanted in several cases of loot and murder, opened fire and an encounter ensued in which the SI identified as Akhtar Khan was killed, they said.

Akhtar's family have refused to conduct his last rites till the criminals are arrested. "Unless the killers are arrested we will not conduct the last rites," Akhtar's elder brother Wahid said.

Wahid also alleged that police personnel in the raiding team fled from the spot leaving Akhtar alone. However, police officials have denied the charge.

The deceased is survived by wife, two sons and a daughter. He hailed from Aligarh.

Akhtar had joined police as a constable in 1998 and later promoted to the post of Sub Inspector. Since 11 June, 2014 he was posted at the Dadri Police Station.
