New Delhi: Charges were framed in a Delhi court over an FIR lodged against Shahrukh Pathan, who pointed a gun at a policeman during the February 2020 Delhi riots. At the same time, one of these charges has been acquitted in FIR number 49/2020 of the Arms Act. Shahrukh's video also became fiercely viral on social media. In that video, policeman Deepak Dahiya confronted Shahrukh with a stick. The trial is going on in the court of Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat.
According to media reports, the case has been registered at the Jafrabad police station in Delhi. Shahrukh was booked under sections 147, 148, 149, 186, 188, 153A, 283, 353, 332, 323, 307, 505, 120B and 34 of the IPC and Section 27 of the Arms Act. Several policemen were injured in the attack. Constable Rohit Shukla was shot. According to the statement of injured policeman Rohit Shukla, "On February 24, 2020, one of the illegal mobs was protesting against the CAA and NRC by chanting 'Allah Hu Akbar.' The other group was violent. A 25-year-old boy with a pistol in his hand came out of the same crowd. He tried to kill me. In the meantime, I was injured by a pistol bullet.''
Shahrukh Pathan, who is accused in the same case, has also been identified by another constable Deepak Dahiya. The location of Shahrukh's call details has also been found on the spot. At the same time, Shahrukh was also seen in a crowd of rioters in the CCTV cameras installed on the spot. It was on this basis that the court had rejected his bail plea some time ago. Advocate Khalid Akhtar appeared on behalf of the accused Shahrukh. The other accused in the case along with Shahrukh are Salman, Gulpham, Atir and Osama.
