A Joint Commissioner level officer of Delhi Police, requesting anonymity, told IANS, “Arrests of Shahrukh and Tahir are very crucial for us. Both could prove vital links in the investigation”.

Another officer, who is a member of the Special Investigation Team (SIT) formed to probe the anti-Hindu riots, said, “Catapults, made indigenously, were found installed on the roofs of many houses in Jafrabad and Mustafabad. It is expected that these catapults were used to throw petrol, acid and chilly bombs 100 metres away”. As per Amar Ujala, Shahrukh and the brother of Tahir Hussain were spotted at Sirsa recently. Some villagers at Paraura, Sirsa had reportedly claimed that Tahir Hussain’s brother and jihadi shooter were seen there for a few minutes at a wedding. However, the Delhi police have denied the claims.

After reports emerged that Shahrukh had been arrested, it was clarified that he was not. The decision to arrest Shahrukh was put off as the Police were busy dealing with riots. This gave him the opportunity to flee. His parents and brother are reportedly absconding too.
