Underworld don Chota Shakeel’s sharp shooter and contract killer was arrested by Special Cell of Delhi Police, police said on Friday.
Sources revealed that Shakeel was in contact with Junaid Choudhary, a sharpshooter and a close associate of the underworld don, planning to target writer Tarek Fatah.
Pakistan-born Canadian writer and TV personality Tarek Fatah has made numerous enemies with his dubious statements on Islam. One of them appears to be Chhota Shakeel, considered the left-hand man of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
Delhi Police’s special cell this week arrested an alleged Shakeel associate who, cops say, was wanting to eliminate Fatah. A court on Friday sent the man, Junaid Chaudhary, 21, to three-day police custody.
