Delhi HC reserves order on bail plea of Delhi riots accused


New Delhi, Apr 9 (ILNS) The Delhi High Court today reserved its order on the bail application filed by Delhi riots accused Shahrukh Pathan, the man who fired at the police officials and others, after riots broke out in Jaffarabad area of the national capital in February last year.

After hearing the matter at length, the Single Judge Bench of Justice Suresh Kumar Kait reserved its order on the plea moved by Pathan, who was arrested on February 24 last year, brandishing a pistol with the temerity of firing and pointing it at police personnel Head Constable Deepak Dahiya, who was deputed on that day for law and order arrangements near Jaffarabad Metro Station.

The Karkardooma Court in November had refused to grant interim bail to Pathan, whose videos showing him “firing shots” at a policeman, during the February 2020 Delhi Riots, had gone viral on the social media/internet. Earlier, Additional Sessions Judge Amitabh Rawat had rejected the interim bail plea of Pathan.

After the said incident near Jaffarabad Metro Station, Pathan had fled from the scene. He was arrested by the team of Delhi Police Crime Branch on March 3, 2020 from the Shamli Bus Stand, Uttar Pradesh, on the basis of secret information. ILNS/SNG/RJ
