Sheik from Bangladesh is the 10th accused. City police had arrested six suspects, including two women, on May 27. Three accused—Rafsan, his wife Tanya and their friend Dalim—were arrested in Chennai on Tuesday and based on their input, city police took Sheik into custody from a makeshift tent of ragpickers near Rampura lake.
On the way to the station, he allegedly assaulted head constable Devendra Nayak with a knife and tried to escape. Sensing danger, subinspector Shivaraj opened fire at Sheik’s left leg. Nayak and Sheik were rushed to Bowring hospital.
