Delhi Violence: Shahrukh, The Gunman Who Opened Fire At Police, Arrested By Crime Branch
Mohammed Shahrukh, whose videos and images of waving a gun at Delhi Police personnel in the Jaffrabad-Maujpur area last Monday when violent clashes broke out, has been arrested.
Shahrukh had been absconding ever since the incident last week in which he threatened a police officer with a gun and even fired 8 rounds as rival groups pelted stones each other on the road.
Now, after a week, Delhi Police on Tuesday arrested Shahrukh from Shamli in Uttar Pradesh.
Earlier it was reported that Delhi Police had managed to arrest Shahrukh within days after he was caught on camera waving a gun at the Delhi Police officer. However, then the police said he was absconding.
Now the police have confirmed that Shahrukh has finally been arrested from Shamli.

Delhi Police constable Ratan Lal, IB official Ankit Sharma were also among the dead.
