Maninderjeet felt that the police will soon reach him and arrest him. So he was about to run away by preparing fake travel papers that he was caught from Indira Gandhi Airport. The police had also issued a Look Out Circular Notice against him. Two cases were already registered against Manjinder.

The second accused Khempreet was absconding since 26 January and was escaping arrest. Khempreet is the accomplice of the first arrested accused Maninder Singh. Maninder was caught a few days by the Special Cell, who was wielding a sword with both hands in the violence. Delhi Police had told that Maninder Singh along with 5 of his comrades and other miscreants entered the Red Fort and committed fencing. This fencing encouraged the miscreants and started attacking the police.
