"He (Shahzad) is held guilty of attempting to cause death of Head Constables Balwant Singh and Rajbir Singh and causing death of Inspector M C Sharma by firing on them," Additional Sessions Judge Rajender Kumar Shastri said. "He is also found guilty of assaulting police officers and obstructing them from doing their duty," he said. "Come for order on sentence on Monday (July 29)," the judge said after convicting him.The court found Shahzad guilty of murder, attempt to murder, obstructing and assaulting public servants and grievously injuring the police officers to deter them from performing their duty.
