Anti-CAA Seelampur riots: Police arrest Raees who got injured after the bomb he was trying to hurl at police exploded in his hand

He was undergoing treatment at Geru Tej bahadur (GTB) Hospital, but had remained incognito to evade arrest

Bomber Raees was arrested by the Delhi police today after he injured himself while hurling a petrol bomb during the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) riots in Seelampur, Delhi on December 17, 2019.

Shortly after the explosion, a video had gone viral in which one can see how the accused Raees got himself injured while trying to throw a petrol bomb to further instigate the riots. In the video, the crowd can be heard shouting “Uska haath gaya” (his hand has gone) after the explosion.

Raees was hospitalised after the bomb he had tried to throw at the police forces prematurely exploded in his own hands. He was undergoing treatment at Geru Tej bahadur (GTB) Hospital, but had remained incognito to evade arrest. Joint CP Alok Kumar informed that the police looking for the rioter got wind of his whereabouts and he was subsequently arrested from the hospital.

According to the police, Raees is still in the hospital, but today he will be taken before magistrate for hearing. The police is yet to reveal about the seriousness of his wound.
