New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Friday filed a chargesheet against Shahrukh Pathan, who had fired at head constable Deepak Dahiya and others during the violence in Delhis northeast area in February this year.
A video of Shahrukh Pathan pointing a gun at Delhi Police head constable Deepak Dahiya had gone viral during the riots that broke out after clashes between pro and anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) protesters took an ugly turn in Delhi's northeast area in February.
A 350-page chargesheet has been filed in the Karkardooma Court against Shaharukh Pathan, Kaleem Ahmad and one Ishtiyak Mallik.
Shahrukh was the first person to be arrested in the case on March 3. Kaleem Ahmad, who had given shelter to him, was later arrested during the investigation.
Charges such as Sections 147 (punishment for rioting), 148 (rioting, armed with deadly weapons), 149 (member of unlawful assembly guilty of offence) and 216 (harboring offender) under the Indian Penal Code have been added to the case, the police said.
"The weapon of offence, a 7.65 mm pistol, and 2 live rounds were recovered from Shahrukh in this case," the police said.
