New Delhi, June 28

Delhi Police on Moday said the Special Cell of the force’s Northern Region (NR) has arrested one Gurjot Singh, who was wanted in the Red Fort violence and hoisting religious flag case and had a reward of Rs 1 lakh on his head, from Amritsar in Punjab.

Confirming the arrest, DCP Special Cell Sanjeev Yadav said, “One Gurjot Singh wanted in the Red Fort case who had a reward of Rs 1 lakh on his head has been arrested by a team of NR of special cell from Amritsar.”

Later, Gurjot was sent to a three-day custody of the Delhi Police by a court here on Monday

In February this year, Delhi Police had announced a cash reward of Rs 1 lakh to anyone, who shared information that could help in tracing several of the accused persons in the case, including Gurjot Singh, Deep Sidhu, Jugraj Singh, Gurjant Singh and others.

Gurjot has been accused of involvement in hoisting the religious flags at the Red Fort and was since absconding.

Since then the police were conducting searches in Delhi and Punjab to look for the accused who “participated in the violent clashes” between police and farmers during Republic Day tractor march.

Unprecedented chaos was unleashed upon Delhi on Republic Day this year as the tractor rally by the protesting farmers went off the designated course and rolled into the Red Fort. A protester had died on the way and over 400 security forces were reported injured in the incident.

The farmers entered the forecourt of the Red Fort, climbed its ramparts, and hoisted religious flags on a mast outside.
