Once the team reached the single-storey house in which Sonu had holed up, they realised that he was hiding at the terrace, while his associates had fled, police said. The local police was asked to surround the entire house and officials of the Special Cell team, including Khatri, climbed the terrace, said police. Sonu was nabbed from there and as the police team was in the process of bringing him down from the terrace, which had no permanent stairs, Khatri lost his balance and fell, police said. “In such operations, the guns are always cocked to ensure spontaneity. It was by the impact of the fall that the AK 47 went off and the bullet hit him,” a senior police officer said.
