The Delhi police on Tuesday (25 February) arrested the violent protester identified as Shahrukh who had opened fire on a police constable during violent protests in Maujpur, ANI has reported.
The 33-year-old Shahrukh was caught on camera pointing a gun at a brave Delhi police constable and then began firing rounds near his head. A video of the shocking act had earlier gone viral.
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.
