Chhota Shakeel’s ‘shooter’ to appear before Delhi court today

New Delhi [India]: Gangster Chhota Shakeel’s shooter and aide Junaid Chowdhry will appear before the Patiala House Court today.

The Patiala House Court on Friday had sent gangster Chowdhry to three-day police custody.

Chowdhry was arrested by the Special cell of the Delhi Police near Gagan Cinema in Delhi on June 7.

“Junaid was allegedly hatching a plan to kill Pakistan born Canadian writer and liberal activist Tarek Fateh,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) Pramod Singh Kushwaha.

The police claimed to have recovered a country made pistol and four live cartridges from Junaid’s possession.

Earlier, he was apprehended on June 3, along with three other contract killers, identified as Robinson, Yunus and Manish following which they were sent to police remand and interrogated for five days.

Later, they were produced in a court which sent them to judicial custody.

Their plan was initially to kill Rajan while on transit to or from court before and after hearings, but that was later changed to attack him during his hospital visits.

Earlier, the police had found many audio clips of Chhota Shakeel from Junaid’s mobile phone. (ANI)
