Delhi Police's Crime Branch on Monday, 3 February, arrested a person, identified as Ajit, for allegedly supplying a weapon to the man who brandished a gun and opened fire in Jamianagar area of the capital on 30 January, reported news agency ANI.

"We have arrested the accused from whom the juvenile had procured the weapon. He is a wrestler," said Rajesh Deo, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Crime).

The accused will be produced in court on Tuesday, the officer said, adding further investigation is underway.
