New Delhi [India]: In the ongoing investigation into the Jahangirpuri anti-Hindu riots case, Delhi police sources revealed Sonu alias Yunus, who allegedly fired shots during the clashes, was planning to flee Delhi in a bid to evade arrest but he was caught 500 meters away from his house.
On April 19, the police had produced him before a local court which sent him to four-day police remand.
According to the Delhi police, Yunus was caught near his house when he came to collect money from someone so that he could use that money to abscond.
“After firing, Sonu knew that his arrest was certain. That’s why he was planning to evade arrest and for that, he came out of his hiding to collect money, when police arrested him,” said police.
According to sources, with the help of technical surveillance and local intelligence, the police came to know that Yunus would come out of his house in Jahangirpuri. Delhi Police arrested him as soon as he came out.
According to Police sources, cases were registered against Yunus and his four brothers under serious sections. Sonu’s brother, Hussain, has about 40 cases registered against him.
Apart from this, another brother, whose name is Ayub Ali, has been lodged in Delhi jail for the last two months. Sonu and his brothers have a meat shop in Jahangirpuri.
Top government officials said National Security Act (NSA) has been imposed against five culprits involved in the clashes.
Officials said NSA has been imposed against Ansar, Salim, Imam Sheikh alias Sonu, Dilshad and Ahir for their involvement in the Jahangirpuri violence. (ANI)
