Despite Various Reports Of His Arrest, Gun Wielding Rioter Shahrukh Still Absconding, Clarifies Delhi PoliceGun wielding rioter Shahrukh 

The Delhi police on Thursday evening (27 February) clarified that the gun wielding rioter Shahrukh who had fired eight rounds at a police constable is still absconding and has not been arrested.

Incidentally various media reports had claimed that soon after being identified, Shahrukh was apprehended by the Delhi police and put under arrest. Subsequently a misinformation campaign was started by a section of the media which suggested that the person identified as Shahrukh was actually Anurag Mishra.

The 33-year-old Shahrukh was infamously caught on camera firing eight rounds in North-East Delhi’s 66 Foota Road.

To the credit of Delhi police head constable Neeraj Dhaiya, he unflinchingly faced the shooter. It may be recalled that during a similar violent anti-CAA protest in Delhi’s Seelampur, a bomb had exploded in a protester’s hand before he could throw it.
